Publisher Comments:

It's time for the annual Corn Maze Festival. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; The farm is bursting with activity. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Cluckandlt;BRandgt; Whack! andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; The chickens build a fence around the cornfield. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Mooandlt;BRandgt; Thwack! andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; The cows give the barn a fresh coat of paint. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Thump. Quack! andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Duck builds the ticket booth for the hot-air balloon ride. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Everyone is excited. Well, Duck is not excited exactly. But he has a plan. As Farmer Brown designs the corn maze for the festival, Duck does some designing of his own. Guess who's in for a big surprise? andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; The always-creative, always-hilarious, always-champions-of-corn-mazes pair who brought you andlt;iandgt;Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Typeandlt;/iandgt;; andlt;iandgt;Giggle, Giggle, Quackandlt;/iandgt;; and andlt;iandgt;Duck for Presidentandlt;/iandgt; have planned a terrific event. Step right up, folks.

Review:

"It's another interspecies battle of wits — and read-aloud winner — from a celebrated duo. This time, Farmer Brown is trying to put together a fabulous Statue of Liberty corn maze. But the ever-subversive Duck has different ideas — and given that he also owns night-vision goggles and a glow-in-the-dark ruler, it's not surprising whose artistic vision triumphs. This entry is more goofy than satiric — it's closer in spirit to Dooby Dooby Moo than Duck for President. But it also proves that this team continues to operate in top form. Lewin is especially good here: her bold, loosely rendered watercolors continue to find new comic depths in the obsessive, cranky Duck (the scenes drawn from the perspective of his night-vision goggles are a hoot). And the subsidiary characters garner plenty of giggles, too. Ages 3 — 7. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

The creators of "Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type" are back with another tale of hilarious hijinks. It's time for the annual corn maze festival. As Farmer Brown designs his Statue of Liberty maze, Duck does some designing of his own. Full color.

Synopsis:

Pip, Midge, and Dot, the lovable, goofy hens of Loopy Coop Farm, are back in their third adventure. This time they wrestle with the age old question: Why do apples fall? On their way to their own unique conclusion, they are first scared silly, then end up just acting silly. Showing bravery, curiosity, and loyalty to each other, these three irresistible hens will inspire young ones to face their own funny fears.

With easy-to-read text and charmingly comic illustrations, this read-aloud is the perfect combination of sweetness and whimsy.
