Duck to the Rescue

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Greenstalks have the cleverest animals around.

    

When something goes wrong on the farm, someone is always ready to jump in, and this time Ernie the duck is determined to help out. But no matter how hard he tries, nothing goes quite right. It takes the clever trick of a kind little lamb for Ernie to finally get his chance to come to the rescue!

Review:

"Given all the disasters that befall the Greenstalk farm, it's a wonder that it's still in business. In the fourth book in the series that began with Chickens to the Rescue, it's Ernie the duck's turn to 'help out.' So when the pumpkins must get to market on Monday, duck leaps into the driver's seat of the vintage pickup truck ('I guess we can turn them into pumpkin pie,' says Farmer Greenstalk of the aftermath). Duck's attempts to retrieve a calf from the rafters of the barn, babysit chickens, and serve as a scarecrow are equally fraught with disaster — and just as certain to have kids laughing through a week's worth of barnyard chaos. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
