Watch Out for Duck...He's Trouble!,
This review is from: Giggle, Giggle, Quack (Hardcover)
Farmer Brown is taking a much needed vacation, and brother Bob will be taking care of things around the farm until he gets back. "I wrote everything down for you. Just follow my instructions and everything will be fine. But keep an eye on Duck. He's trouble." And all sharp eyed readers will notice the pencil duck is eyeing as Farmer Brown drives away. Soon the fun begins as Bob reads the first note. "Tuesday night is pizza night (not the frozen kind!). The hens prefer anchovies." As the week progresses, the instructions become more outrageous. "Wednesday is bath day for the pigs. Wash them with my favorite bubble bath and dry them off with my good towels. Remember, they have very sensitive skin..." "Thursday night is movie night. It's the cows' turn to pick..." And when Farmer Brown finally calls home to check in and Duck answers the phone, he realizes the animals have really pulled a fast one on poor old unaware Bob...Giggle, giggle, quack, giggle, moo, giggle, oink..... The dynamic duo, Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin, who authored Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type, are back and in fine form with this clever and hilarious sequel. Ms Cronin's droll text is engaging and sets the scene. But it's Ms Lewin's bold and busy, cartoon-like artwork that really steals the show, and youngsters will revel in the fact that they're in on the joke as they enjoy all the subtle details, marvelous animal facial expressions, and entertaining barnyard scenes. Perfect for youngsters 3-7, Giggle, Giggle, Quack is a silly, funny, manic adventure that definitely shouldn't be missed.
