What a dilemma! War is declared and the farm animals confront its ineludible threat, in the fourth adventure of Frank Hazard’s fabulist “Sow Belly” series, and Sow Belly and Herb the Worm undertake a dangerous mission to rescue a hapless friend, Michael the Frog, who has been captured by their adversaries. The Farm Yard Force, a militia, has been organized to halt the predatory invasion of a belligerent army that includes a nefarious spider, a two-headed snake and a spiteful wolf commanded by an ambiguous Presence—a Voice—that hypnotically mesmerizes them and induces their unconditional obedience. The threat of a battle looms and the Farm Yard Force is on the march. Vividly illustrated and suspensefully crafted, with an exotic variety of sinister, audacious and eccentric farm animal characters SOW BELLY AND THE WAR deftly combines humor, mystery and adventure in a vibrant narrative that will fascinate children and unforgettably intrigue adults.
