Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. PreSchool-Grade 2–The farmyard is aflutter as the cows that type return with new correspondence. Youngsters will soon realize that they invited all of their animal friends, including Duck, to a picnic. The alphabetical adventure begins as the Animals awake and ends 25 letters later with them peacefully snoring Zzzzzzzz…. In between there is plenty of fun as Duck pulls the Mice munching in a red wagon, Rain threatens, and X marks the picnic spot. Once again, this author-illustrator team works in perfect harmony to create a colorful and funny story with highly expressive animals. It's sure to delight Duck's many fans, and there's a distinct possibility that this adventure will have more appeal to preschoolers than the original story that inspired it.–Maura Bresnahan, High Plain Elementary School, Andover, MA

From Booklist

PreS. The team that did the Caldecott Honor Book Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type (2000), and its sequel, Giggle, Giggle Quack (2002), use the same farmyard slapstick to tell a simple alphabet adventure. "Animals awake beneath blue blankets." Cows clickety clack on the old typewriter. Then there's "Duck dashing, eggs emptying . . . goats grooming, hens helping," and so on. What's going on? Suspense builds until "X marks the picnic spot," where the animals have fun, then yawn, and finally catch some Z's. Young preschoolers will learn the alphabet sounds as they act out the animal bedlam and point to the silly scenarios in the uproarious cartoons. Hazel Rochman

Maybe if he was really into the characters from the other books he would like this.

My 3 1/2 year old loves all of the Duck stories, so when I found this ABC book I thought terrific! He was so excited when he opened the box and saw Duck on the cover. We sat down immediately to read the story and found there wasn't a story, just silly words for each letter. My son was extremely disappointed. I hope to get him interested in the letters and pictures, but he prefers Richard Scarry books for that, he was hoping for another Duck adventure.

Please keep this in mind as my son is way past learning his alphabet and this book was a great disappointment. No stories here, just a D for Duck, C for Cow, etc, from A-Z. I was going to give this review 3 stars but I should have paid more attention to the title. For what it is, it's a great book.

As a story book 0 Stars

As an alphabet book 5/5 Stars

My 16-month-old loves this book. Not only did it get him excited about the letters but also about going on a picnic. We read Click, Clack, Quackity-Quack together every night, and he knows that when the animals go to sleep at the end of the story, so does he! The other reviewer should take another look at this alphabetical adventure, since she seems to need some spelling guidance (it's NONSENSE...).

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By William in Lawrenceville, GA on February 9, 2006
Format: Hardcover
"The cows on Farmer Brown's farm are typing again," proclaims the liner notes to Click, Clack, Quackity-Quack. And indeed, there they are right on the C-page, Clickety-clacking on the typewriter. A duck grabs a page from the cows and totes it along in his beak. By the M-page, he's also pulling a bright red wagon with a blanket-covered basket inside. Other animal friends join the wagon-wielding, page-toting duck as he runs along. Where is everyone going? The destination is finally revealed at W, where we see a picnic blanket crowded with fruits, a pitcher of lemonade and that picnic staple we all love - Watermelons! X - Y - Z brings the book to a satisfying close: X marks the picnic spot, Y-awns erupt among the picnicked-out animals, and then Z-zzzzzzzzz....

Animal illustrations throughout the book are engaging and often amusing, but too often they seem distracting and extraneous to the overall story. As an example, the G-J pages are a hodge-podge of action that seems only vaguely related to the picnic, and it culminates with a confusing depiction of the Duck jumping over an inch-worm that seems to be jumping at the same time. The page carried by the duck disappears completely from R through W (6 pages), and by the time it is revealed at X its significance may have been forgotten by the reader.

For children who eagerly anticipate the ongoing adventures of Farmer Brown's cows and know to expect that their typewritten page will play an important part in the story, this book should be a satisfying adventure. Those who have never ventured to Farmer Brown's farm should probably start with an earlier adventure in the series.

This book has nothing to do with typing. Probably my mistake for not picking up on the funny coloring of the keys. But why would a publisher name a book "...typing..." and show a querty keyboard if it were not a book for kids to use to learn to type? In any case, what this book is is an alphabet learning tool, and a poor one at that. You push a key and get a funny sound, often unintelligible. The text shows the usual A words for A, etc. Nothing special. But if it is only an alphabet learning book, why not organize the letters in alphabetical order, since kids learning letters are also trying to learn to recite the alphabet. What earthly purpose does it serve to use a querty keyboard if your are not going to make any reference to typing...to which finger goes where, etc.? Probably just to sucker in people like me who were looking for a real typing book for kids and probably won't bother to bear the shipping cost to return the useless thing.

My three-year-old granddaughter giggles every time she plays with this. I like that all the pieces stay in one place! It's neat that it involves letter recognition but it's not the best method for teaching that.
