Welcome to Story County!

Farmer, Dog, Pig, Chicken, and Miss Cow are eager to make a farm. And it's no ordinary farm. They paint the barn a rainbow of colors, plant crops of jelly beans and candy corn, fashion the prettiest scarecrow, and more, until presto!—the farm is complete. Or is it?

New York Times bestselling illustrator Derek Anderson takes readers from white page to colorful farm in this charming tale of friendship (and teamwork), as five friends come together to create Story County—a special new home for young readers, where anything can happen!

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Hot Rod Hamster:

"Anderson's acrylic artwork is consistently action filled and comical... [W]hen it comes to kid appeal, the book's interactive format should get impressive mpg." —Publishers Weekly

"Anderson's acrylics are boisterously large, colorful, and off-kilter—just like his swaggering protagonist." —Booklist

"Brilliant illustrations invite little eyes into the story." —Nashville Parent
