It took another five years, however, before the book was published. She stated in her bio that this book was not only her first published book but also the easiest book to write, taking her only about 20 minutes to jot down the story. The book went on to become a Caldecott Honor Book. While the book eventually met with great success, publishers rejected it repeatedly for several years until a publisher eventually called her with the news that it would be published.

Booklist Review

K^-Gr.3. Cronin's cheerful farce about animals on strike and the perplexed farmer who must deal with them is retold in a matter-of-fact Spanish, complemented by the original, boisterous, cartoonlike art. Young Spanish speakers will laugh at the animals' audacity in withholding eggs and milk in exchange for electric blankets. After emergency meetings and the intervention of neutral Pato, Farmer Brown concedes in a joyous, unexpected ending.
