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

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.
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!
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.
