In this sixth picture book in Roland Harvey's hilarious and delightful holiday adventure series, Uncle Kev has a farm, where the pigs do the polishing and the cows are the happiest in all the hills. Kev invites the family for a 'holiday', then sets them to work. There's lots to be done before the big Harvest Festival - and Kev is distracted, because he's fallen in love!

Uncle Kevin had a farm,

A-E-I-O-U,

and on that farm we had a holiday,

A-E-I-O-U!

With a moo moo here and an oink oink there,

here a honk, there a quack,

everywhere a neigh neigh.

Uncle Kevin had a farm,

A-E-I-O-U!

Come with us on our other family holiday adventures: All the Way to W.A., To the Top End, In the City, In the Bush and At the Beach.
