Who’s got what it takes to be a star? Who will win top farm talent show Tractor Factor? Will it be cool clip-clop star Dubbin’ Dobbin, or Hissing Hank and his hot Honky Tonk Honkers? Or will the leaderboard be upset by a shock last-minute entry…
The atmosphere is electric down on the farm. Old Farmer Clegg is fast asleep and up in the barn by the sheep field, the secret midnight talent show can begin. All the animals are desperate to impress the panel of judges – especially the head judge, who happens to be a cow named Simon. Competition is fierce and the final decision will be hard. Not only that, but nobody’s counted on a certain farmer with a sleepwalking habit!
Farmer Clegg’s Night Out is my second book with the excellent Jim Field, and follows the success of Cat’s Ahoy!, which won the 2011 Roald Dahl Funny Prize. Jim’s website is: www.jimfield.co.uk.
