The squire of Bedlam Farm shares the unpredictable adventure of farm life. From little Jesus, the newborn donkey who becomes the farm mascot, to the sociable steer Elvis and his enormous sweetheart Luna, the creatures at Bedlam Farm find new ways to challenge Katz. Riding herd on the place is Rose, the workaholic border collie. Not even Rupert the ram can intimidate her. The sheep, the chickens and the cat all contribute to the hum (and occasional roar) of the place. So do the vet, the carpenter, and the animals' tender-hearted nursemaid. In spite of the aches and pains brought on by his demanding lifestyle and days when Bedlam Farm truly lives up to its name, the author is sustained in all he does by his wife, Paula. Through summer days and winter storms, he meditates on what animals can selflessly teach us.--From publisher description.

This was a very readable book, cute stories about farm life. Suitable for a young person.

I loved this book. Great read for anyone who loves animals and/or farm life. I love Mr. Katz' writing style; this book has parts that made me laugh out loud, gave me a lump in my throat and everything in between.

I really enjoyed this book. I liked that it talked about the different animals and people, and wasn't just concentrated on one aspect. I enjoy this author, I find his writing style enjoyable. He injects humour, and his own opinion of farm life which I can realate to in many ways. The down side to this book is that some parts are pretty repetative, I just skimmed over these parts though.
