Farmer Palmer's Wagon Ride


Caldecott Medal-winning author/illustrator William Steig's classic children's book, Farmer Palmer's Wagon Ride is "a joyous slapstick farce with a breezy text that rushes headlong...from one hilarious misadventure to another" (The Horn Book).

An ALA Notable Children's Book

Farmer Palmer, a pig, and his hired hand Ebenezer, a donkey, have a fine morning selling their leeks, turnips, and lettuce at the market. By noon they're on their way home with a new straw hat for Ebenezer and gifts for the whole Palmer family. But before long, harum-scarum gusts of wind sweep through, setting off a "comically hapless journey" (Booklist, starred review).
