The duck says, Read this book!

Follow the duck in this madcap romp around the farmyard, which will have kids delighting in his clueless antics and witty wordplay.

Bouncing rhymes are perfectly paired with colourful, exuberant art full of visual gags that will have readers laughing along and anticipating what will happen next.

A little absurd, a lot slapstick, and all good fun, this is one to keep within arms reach at storytime.
