An inventive barnyard yarn from a household name.

Fred doesn't care for work, especially his city job. One day, just like that, he tells his bewildered mother, "Ma, I'm a farmer!" That'll be a relaxing change.

His new neighbors warn him of the workload. "Chores, schmores, I'm not doing any chores," snorts Fred. But the hungry animals have other ideas, and soon Fred is up to his overalls in agriculture.

Farmer Fred turns to his technical know-how, and in no time machines are doing his dirty work and he can relax.... That is, until his automatons blow the power grid and the electric company cuts him off for good. But there's energy enough from the wind and the sun if you build the right gadgets.

Finally, Fred can sit back and proudly say, "Ma, I'm a farmer!" It's not such hard work after all...but wait! Is that smoke?

With his usual wit and visual flair, celebrated illustrator Michael Martchenko excels in this ticklish tale of too much technology that proves there is no substitute for a hard day's work.
