    Farmer Paul is hard at work while the rest of the village rests raking, digging and watering He watches and waits, and soon enough his crops start to grow Then comes a terrible dry spell, and all seems lost as the plants begin to wither Fortunately, Paul s friends pitch in to help him, and all ends wellOriginally published in French as Le potager, this simple picture book from Spanish author artist Ximo Abad a captures both the work and rewards of farming, as well as the dependence of farmers on matters entirely outside of their control, such as the weather I can see why The Farmer has been described as an ecological fable, although I did find it a little confusing that the friends who helped Paul were all animals I was expecting some kind of human solidarity, as one so often sees in rural communities I also wasn t clear on how the animals could help, if all the water had dried up, although the point about awaiting the coming of the rains again was apropos Despite my quibbles with the extremely simple narrative, I found this picture book appealing, both because of its general themes and because the artwork is so compelling Bright, bold colors, stylized figures, eye catching layout these all make the illustrations quite appealing I definitely hope that of Abad a s work is made available in English

    The story is of Paul, a farmer who does his job tenaciously The illustrations are bright, and the story is not overly wordy.

    First published in French, this picture book features small but interesting illustrations, shapes, and forms laid out against a yellow background There is much detail to notice and lively images the warrant a second look for instance, the double page spread in which the farmer almost seems to be zooming across the page in a cart preceded by his donkey as a rake and bushel follow him The story itself concerns hard working farmer, Paul, who does all the necessary preparation for growing crops while his neighbors seem interested in resting Each page shows a different task and then Paul s watchfulness and joy once his crops begin to thrive But heat and drought threaten them, and the well is dry Although Paul is close to despairing, his friends help him out I liked how the friends turn out to be animals and nature, even the rain, and the final pages with those large, healthy fields are simply love This is a quiet yet effective story of determination Anyone who has grown up on a farm will be able to relate to the hard work and the fact that farmers often must rely on the whims of nature The endpapers feature far tools and equipment, and some readers will like seeing all the little animals popping out of the holes in various scenes.

    Originally published in French, this import has now been translated into English It tells the simple tale of Paul, the farmer While others rest Paul is hard at work plowing and planting, mowing and raking When a drought hits, however, it seems all his efforts were for naught Friends help and finally his friend, the rain, arrives Soon his small town is surrounded by the results of his labors Simple illustrations emphasize lines, both vertical and horizontal This is a gently sweet story that might tie in with a spring story time.

    I wish the story showed how the farmer was generous with his crop so the payoff would have been satisfying.
