Egan's deadpan voice delivers maximum comic value, and his muted watercolors convey the animals' combination of shyness and hilarity. Publishers Weekly, Starred. Well the animals got to talking amongst themselves and all agreed that farming may be serious and all that, but that should not mean they had to be serious ALL of the time. they missed a good laugh and they missed the fun of simply smiling.

Egan will crack up even the dourest of readers with this devastatingly deadpan episode. Like James Marshall, Egan gives his simply drawn figures tiny, but wonderfully expressive eyes. Weary of life with Farmer Fred, who is given to pronouncements like, "Nothing funny about corn," a group of farm animals tries everything from circus tricks to dressing in his clothes in an effort to get him to lighten up. At last, discouraged, they sneak away. Children may roll theirs-but here's a telling demonstration that a serious disposition isn't the same as a humorless one. Heh, heh. (Picture book. Farmin’ is serious business, he’d say. ?Nothin’ funny about corn. Farmin' is serious business," he'd say. "Nothin' funny about corn. But everyone has to laugh sometimes, including Farmer Fed.

Farmer Fred never smiled much. “Farmin’ is serious business,” he’d say. “Nothin’ funny about corn.” And so life on his farm was pretty serious. None of the animals laughed or even smiled. But everyone has to laugh sometimes, including Farmer Fed. The animals try everything to get him to smile: dancing by the light of the moon in Farmer Fred’s clothes, singing chickens, sheep disguised in sunglasses and mustaches. Nothing works and finally the animals decide to leave Serious Farm in search of a more cheerful place to chuckle and graze. Will the animals find a livelier home, and will Farmer Fred ever lighten up?
  • One of our all time favorites!!! Got this book out the library, then tracked it down on Amazon. It is seriously too funny. Like "Far Side" for the kids.

  • After many years since first time we read it in library, my daughter and I are still referring to Farmer Fred a lot. it is one of the few children books I still keep even my daughter already grow up.
    it is a good book to teach children that people are all different, even a person as serious as farmer Fred, he can still be a person with loving heart.

  • this book is so funny to me. I don't think my reading of it gives it justice. I like that the animals are trying to do silly things to make the farmer laugh and he's very dry and dead-pan.

  • Fantastic book! I read it to my 3-year-old preschool class several times this year and they loved it! And my 5-year-old loves it too!

  • This book is very cute, and gives my son a chance to practice his "serious" face. The text flows well and the pictures are fun to talk about.

  • Very funny. Love this book. Adults will enjoy it more than the kids. A crack up! Great pictures too. I see I need one more word. Fantastic.

  • "Farmer Fred never smiled much. He wasn't a sad fellow, just very serious. `Farmin' is serious business,' he'd say. `Nothing funny about corn.'"

    Yes, Farmer Fred was indeed a serious fellow. You've met folks like him; serious, serious, serious with never a laugh, never a joke, never a light moment. "There's no humor in tomatoes." And all of the animals agreed...they were all as serious as Farmer Fred.

    Well the animals got to talking amongst themselves and all agreed that farming may be serious and all that, but that should not mean they had to be serious ALL of the time. They decided to lighten things up just a bit and get Farmer Fred to just smile now and then...they missed a good laugh and they missed the fun of simply smiling.

    And so their quest began...get Farmer Fred to smile.

    The greater part of this book consists of the antics the animals went through to get Farmer Fred to smile. Now I will not tell you if they were successful because I hate placing spoilers in my review but I will tell you that their efforts most certainly put a smile on my face.

    This is one of those books that the reader must read the word while at the same time look closely at the expressions on the faces of the characters. The author's sense of humor is on the quirky side - to say the least and I suppose you have to have sort of a quirky sense of humor to "get it." The story is fun for adults to read and at the same time the story is simple enough for the kids to understand perfectly what is going on. The art work is quite extraordinary in that a whole story can be read simply my looking at the eyes and mouths of the animals. As I said...quirky.

    This story also teaches a good little lesson; it is okay to be serious about your work but a little levity here and there and a smile on the faces surrounding you can make life much more enjoyable.

    I liked this little book and all of the children I have read it to liked it too. Although I do have to admit that "Broccoli's no fun" and "I never laugh at bell peppers," either.

  • Would have given it five stars but the words being typed and not always matching pictures made it confusing.
    I am going to use with my class.
