Amazon.com Review

The crafty barnyard crew from Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type is back, and this time Farmer Brown has decided to take a vacation. But not to worry--he's leaving his brother Bob to mind the farm: "I wrote everything down for you. Just follow my instructions and everything will be fine. But keep an eye on Duck. He's trouble." Of course, fans of Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin's last brilliant book already know to keep an eye on that manipulative mallard. Now, wait a minute... what's Duck doing eyeing that pencil?

Poor Bob has no idea what he's in for, and Duck and friends have shrewdly seized this chance to move on from collective bargaining to outright subterfuge: "Bob gave Duck a good long stare and went inside. He read the first note: 'Tuesday night is pizza night (not the frozen kind!). The hens prefer anchovies.'" Well, seems like strange way to run a farm, but... "Twenty-nine minutes later there was hot pizza in the barn." Giggle, giggle, quack, indeed.

Clearly, Duck and his cow pals aren't the only ones around to have mastered the pencil and the keyboard. Cronin and Lewin have put their talents to good use yet again, offering up another simple but clever story fit for kids and grownups alike. Lewin seems to snicker throughout her playful watercolors (gotta love those monogrammed towels: "FB"), and Cronin has a ball with the animal cast and their human patsy. (What do the cows pick on movie night? "The Sound of Moosic," of course. Giggle, giggle, moo.) (Ages 4 to 8) --Paul Hughes

From Publishers Weekly

The barnyard animals first seen in Cronin and Lewin's Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type continue to express themselves via the written word in this clever and funny sequel. When Farmer Brown takes a vacation and leaves his brother Bob in charge ("I wrote everything down for you. Just follow my instructions and everything will be fine. But keep an eye on Duck. He's trouble"), enterprising Duck sees boundless opportunity in the situation. The webbed fellow commandeers the pencil and paper that Farmer Brown has left behind and writes out his own feeding/care tips for Bob to follow: "Tuesday night is pizza night (not the frozen kind!). The hens prefer anchovies." (A "giggle, giggle, cluck" escapes from the onlookers.) Unaware of the note's authorship, Bob complies, and subsequent requests include indoor bubble baths for the pigs and the cows' choice for movie night ("The Sound of Moosic"). The jig is soon up with Duck and company found out in a humorous denouement. Cronin again balances wit and jovial warmth in scenarios that will have readers laughing out loud. Fans of the first book will delight in the details found in Lewin's chipper watercolor washes with a painted bold black line (the electric blankets originally demanded by the cows are put to good use, for example). This sitcom on the farm more than lives up to its title and demands repeat visits. Ages 3-7.

Format: Hardcover
This companion to "Click, Clack, Moo" reunites author Doreen Cronin with her illustrative foil, Betsy Lewin. Those bossy farm animals are back and here, they decide to turn things to their advantage when Farmer Brown goes on vacation. Leaving his easygoing brother Bob in charge is a mistake, as the animals get manipulative--demanding pizza, videos at night ("The Sound of Moosic," naturally!) and so on.
I can't say enough about Betsy Lewin's illustrations. With just a few swooping lines and a sensitive use of color, she manages to give each animal its own personality while simultaneously carrying along the narrative thrust of the story. Her pictures are a joy to behold and a testament to the power of simplicity.
Poor Bob does what he can to make the animals happy, and by the time Farmer Brown arrives home, everything is in hilarious disarray. Although this isn't quite up to the level of "Click, Clack, Moo," it'd be a fun gift for a child who already has the earlier book.

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.

A Kid's Review on October 16, 2004
Format: Hardcover
This book is about a duck writing notes and he is trying to fool Bob. I like this book because the duck was trying to fool Bob and it is funny. Later, the telephone rings and duck answered the phone and he said giggle, giggle, quack. You should read this book too. It is funny and entertaining.

If you enjoyed Click Clack Moo, you will love its sequel, Giggle, Giggle Quack. The team of Cronin and Lewin have done it again with this very funny tale of barnyard animals who cleverly dupe Farmer Brown's brother Bob into getting them what they want.
As before, Lewin's comical, boldly outlined watercolors are a perfect match for Cronin's witty story. You and the child in your life will enjoy this book. Look out for duck...he's a handful!

I became a big fan of Cronin and Lewis with "Click Clack Moo, Cows That Type." "Giggle Giggle Quack" is every bit as hilarious. It is one of those books that you don't mind reading to your child over and over because it entertains the grown-ups, too. If you fall in love with Cronin and Lewis, too, don't miss "Duck For President" (that darn Duck is at it again) or "Diary of a Worm."

Another charming book by the same author of Click, Clack, Moo. Farmer Brown is off on vacation, leaving his brother behind to take care of the animals. Duck is in charge with all kinds of interesting instructions for Farmer Brown's brother. The animals chow down on pizza especially ordered for them, the pigs get bubble baths, in other words, the animals have a gay old time. I love the illustrations, the pigs taking a bath are just so happy. An excellent book for kids, and a real good laugh for adults too.

I absolutely loved the original Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type. It was silly, fun to read, and very creative. The book ended with the ducks taking off with the type writer - which I thought set up for a sequel.... HOWEVER, the sequel Giggle, Giggle, Quack does not have a type writer nor are the ducks demanding for anything like a diving board nor is the typewriter passed to another farm animal for further demands.... instead this book has the duck writing with a pencil to change notes left for their babysitter (because the farmer is on vacation). Overall, I found the book to pale in comparison to the original. Yes it is still silly to kids, but its not great. I wish I hadn't bought it.

Overall this book is silly and has repetitive phrases like giggle giggle quack giggle giggle moo... but its not as good as the original by far and I wish the story flowed seamlessly from the original.
