"Old Macdonald heard a parp ... E-I-E-I-O!"
There are some VERY rude noises coming from Old Macdonald's farm - who could be responsible?! Sing along to this side-splitting picture book adaptation of everyone's favourite nursery rhyme.
Old Macdonald's busy day on the farm keeps getting interrupted by some VERY rude noises ... but who could they be coming from?! A hilarious and irreverent take on the classic nursery song from debut author/illustrator, Olaf Falafel, with helpful do-it-yourself instructions so you can parp along to your heart's content!
Perfect for fans of The Dinosaur That Pooped series.

I love this book! Still giggling about it now after reading to my son. Plenty of fun to be had. Making funny parp sounds on each couple of pages. The ending makes me laugh a lot.... I can relate! Hahahahaha
This will certainly keep the kids amused.

I bought this book as a present for my sons new teacher because he had previously read 'poo' stories to the class before that the children loved.  This book is a cheeky little take on the classic rhyme, and instead of animal vocal sounds, it's their bottom sounds!!  There are funny pictures and explanations on how to correctly make each noise, which made the children and teachers laugh a lot! Wonderful illustrations. 

Perfect for a bit of FUN!!

This is a very funny take on a classic song and a classic tale. Old MacDonald hears a parp and wonders who made the sound. He goes round the farm singing a funnier version of the children's rhyme 'Old MacDonald had a farm.' The illustrations in this book are fantastic and the subject matter certainly made us laugh. The different noises made in the story are very funny and made everyone smile when we tried to read them aloud. A great book with lots of animal characters and funny sentences.

What a funny book! Toilet humour is popular in this house especially with Leo who loves this book! 
It is a very clever take on a traditional song that will stick in your brain long after you've finished reading it! The illustrations are simple but add to the amusement!

A funny take on an old classic but i'm going to be that boring mum who's going to say it's too silly for me! It is certainly fun to explore farm animals by their bottom sounds rather than their mouth sounds and I think it's genius that instructions for said animal sounds are provided but I feel it would be more fun reading this with a child that is old enough to join in rather than a 9 month old who just looks at you like you've gone insane. I do have to say that it's down to my self consciousness rather than me being offended by the topic.

It's wonderfully illustrated, humorous and has a brilliantly funny ending but I'm not silly enough to make the most out of this book. Daddy on the other hand....

My kids enjoyed the silly noises and each page gives a good way of making the different noises but I found the book repeatative and not very funny. It's not one I would want to read over again.
