Adventures of Farmer Jack is a series of humorous short stories about the character, Farmer Jack, his wife, Irmatrude, and the many animals that live on the farm. The animals run loose there, and each has a funny name. The book describes, in a comical way, the interaction of Farmer Jack with his animals, dysfunctional relatives, and tradespeople who come to the old farm. Various types of animals periodically wander over from neighboring farms, and Farmer Jack always investigates the source of these animals and meets the resident farmers at the other farms. Each farmer has a funny name and presents his prize animal to Farmer Jack. There are many patterns that are developed throughout the book adding to the humor and adventure with the unusual characters and strange animals. Irmatrude is obsessed with baking fragrant vegetable casseroles. Auntie Dulringer is infatuated with the cuckoo clock, Auntie Bellegirdler usually reclines in Farmer Jack's big easy chair in a dull stupor; and Grandma L. is overly concerned with her foot quirks. The house animals are peculiar too with Rooter and Squareroot, the dogs, going on sniffing binges, Tulip, the tiny lady pig, rooting in strange places, and the cats, birds, and mice that live with Farmer Jack. Even the farm machinery, trucks, and cars are brought into the picture with their funny names, and, along with Flybert and Fleamore, the handymen, everything comes to light in a humorous way. Adventures of Farmer Jack is a delightful presentation of life on an eccentric old farm. Louise Lefler Fry
