In this new 24-page, bilingual (English/French) picture book, a young boy named Charles leads a farm. One day, he faces a problem. His farm animals go on strike. They refuse to work, want to eat more food or sleep longer. Charles asked all his animals what would make them happy. After listening to them one by one, he gathered them in the barn. Charles told them that he understood their needs. However, he was not able to satisfy them. He offered to sell them to the zoo. The animals could have food and sleep all the day long for the rest of their lives without any obligation to work.
When they realized that Charles was serious about selling them to the zoo, all the animals asked to stay and promised to get back to work.
The happy ending will make young readers laugh and ask to read this story again and again.
At the end of the book, there is quiz to evaluate children's reading understanding.
