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 the barnstorming pig mariachi band? 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 the second of my three books with the excellent Jim Field, the others being Cats Ahoy!, which won the 2011 Roald Dahl Funny Prize, and Rich Witch, Poor Witch. All are published by Macmillan Children’s Books.
