The hilarious, classic folksong about domestic rivalry is brought to life in this vibrantly illustrated picture book. Father Grumble believes he is more capable at performing household chores than his wife is. She agrees to go into the field to plow if he does her work at home and in the farmyard. Father Grumble encounters so many domestic challenges that he must confess it is more difficult to run a household than to plow a field. Based on the 15th-century Ballad of a Tyrannical Husband, this delightful picture book includes a link to the downloadable song, Father Grumble.
