What a fun story with a heroic duck and a lazy farmer.
About the Book
A hardworking duck is rescued from life with a lazy farmer in this beautiful 25th anniversary board book edition of an award-winning classic.
This is the story of a hardworking duck, who has the very bad luck of living with a lazy farmer. The duck cooks and cleans, tends the fields and cares for all the other animals on the farm – and all while the famer lies in bed! Oh, how the duck has to work! That is, until the day the other animals decide to take action, and come to the rescue with a simple, but heroic plan... Highly commended for the Kate Greenaway Medal and the winner of a British Book Award, this tale of farmyard friendship and justice is as powerful and as charming as ever, and is from two of the most celebrated picture book creators of all time – Owl Babies author, Martin Waddell, and Bear Hunt illustrator, Helen Oxenbury.
