Welcome to Bald's farm. Well, perhaps it's not Bald's farm anymore. The old man has kicked the bucket, setting off a wave of conflict from the flooded farmhouse kitchen to the muddy pig pen to the tall wheat fields. In this darkly funny, slightly supernatural chain of tales, no creature is safe. Not Leonard Grey, a spider with sophisticated tastes. Not Esmeralda, a resentful one-legged pig. Not Tulip, a plant with a mean streak. And as for Bones, the old man's son, and Fat, his winged rival? They'll learn that danger lurks in the strangest of places.

My only complaint is that the book is far too short! Yes they are not kid's fairy tales. I think a mature mind is a must with this type of humour.

Very violent, including animal abuse! What was the point of this so-called novel? I can't believe someone would publish this garbage and call it young adult. Couldn't and wouldn't finish it. Disgusting.
