Praise For…

Farm Anatomy fits perfectly into my growing collection of books that will come in handy when I give up city life for green acres. (Or more realistically, when I’m sitting in my city apartment needing a quick armchair-style escape.)

“Charming drawings and handwritten text make this the perfect picture book for grown-up dreamers.”
