Poor Lenore! None of the other animals at Bedlam Farm welcome her. Even Rose the border collie is too busy to play. But Lenore refuses to give up, and when she licks a grumpy ram named Brutus--right on the nose!--an unexpected friendship begins.

I read this in my preschool storytime. I liked this book because I was able to expose the children to non-fiction with a lovable story. I liked the pictures of the real life animals in the story. I also felt like the children learned some 'life lessons' through the experiences of the animals.

Katz, Jon books are not lovable animal stories people think they are .. Katz, Jon owns a farm but as soon as he wants to write another book on another animal he quickly dispensives of some of his other animals sometimes in not too much of a nice way,,,,,He was a crime writer and knew nothing about dogs ..

Just be warned not for the animal lover ,,i read all his books thinking it maybe just one I also checked his facebook page also searched on line for any other info and was shocked ,,,

The rooster is dispensed with hit on the head by Jon amd killed ,, The dog is kept separate from the other animals in a electric fence ( read so many I dont remember in which book but it happens

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Katz In the Border Collie community
Katz's books about dogs have received favorable reviews in the literary press,[8] but have been met with a hostile reaction in segments of the Border Collie community. Notable examples of this criticism have included Donald McCaig's review of The Dogs of Bedlam Farm in [The Bark] magazine,[9] and Penny Tose's review of Katz on Dogs in The American Border Collie magazine,[10] as well as comments on various internet forums such as the BC Boards and the Working Stockdog Forum. Critics have faulted Katz for a fundamental lack of understanding of the dogs and their work and for offering misguided training advice while professing an expertise that he in fact lacks.[11] Katz has claimed to enjoy "riling the Border Collie snobs",[12] but criticism of him intensified after he gave away his second Border Collie and had the first euthanized for behavioral problems.[13][14]
