The farmer's house puts me in mind of a kids books all law profs should know about: Farmer Duck. The author practiced labor law, I think. Suffice to say that the animals get organized.

Thanks for this new stop on my daily blog watch,

This post reminds me of the classic Simpsons episode, "Lisa the Vegetarian":

Homer: Wait a minute wait a minute wait a minute. Lisa honey, are you saying you're *never* going to eat any animal again? What about bacon?
Lisa: No.
Homer: Ham?
Lisa: No.
Homer: Pork chops?
Lisa: Dad! Those all come from the same animal!
Homer: [Chuckles] Yeah, right Lisa. A wonderful, magical animal.

Are there *two* kids' books about labor organization on the farm? There is also "Click, Clack, Moo: Cows that Type" by Doreen Cronin. The cows get their hands on a typewriter and start issuing their demands to the farmer, eventually going on strike. Duck gets involved as a "neutral party" to carry communications back and forth between the farmhouse and the barn.

And, yes, the author blurb says that Cronin is an attorney.

My mistake -- the title *is* Click, Clack, Moo. And Farmer Brown is, well, management. The cows go on strike for electric blankets as I recall. I think there was a sequel, too. But Click, Clack, Moo is hilarious. Oh, and there's also Duck for President. :-)

I like Click Clack Moo as well -- it's definitely in the genre of 'kids books half-designed for the parents.' (As are the Olivia books, for example.)

As I am remembering from Farmer Duck, it has an illicit commentary about management when the opening line is read with the rhythm of a limerick. "There once was a duck / who had the back luck / to live with a lazy old farmer."
