Book
A playful story with a surprise ending!

"Louella Mae,
she's run away!
Look in the cornfields!
Look in the hay!
Where, oh where, is Louella Mae?"

Louella Mae is missing and everyone on the farm is frantically trying to find her. In the hay, in the well, in the barn: she is nowhere to be found. But there's a surprise in store at the end of the book when we find that Louella Mae is . . . a pig, who just had piglets!

Wonderful illustrations and playful humor make this book perfect for reading aloud. Its rhythm, rhyme, and sense of fun make it just right for preschoolers.
