While the farmer is sleeping the afternoon away, Duck and the other animals are planning a most unusual fishing trip. Sneaking past Farmer Brown is going to be as easy as 1, 2, 3! andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; This numerical adventure for the very youngest Duck fans brings counting books to a whole new level -- click, clack, splish, splash!
"Fast on the webbed feet of Click, Clack, Quackity Quack: An Alphabetical Adventure comes this counting companion, again starring Duck as the instigator of mischievous, though well-intentioned fun. As the farmer naps on the couch near his soothing fish tank ('1 farmer sleeping'), Duck ('2 feet creeping') and the barnyard crew sneak into the house on a hush-hush mission something that involves '3 buckets piled high' outside the window and '4 chickens standing by.' At book's end, readers learn that Duck's master plan was to liberate the farmer's finned friends (a clue is planted on the title page). Though not quite as charming as its abecedarian cousin, this slight volume still offers a comical introduction to numerals one through 10. Lewin's black-outlined menagerie is as breezy as ever, tiptoeing, climbing or splashing through lots of white space to the final destination. Ages 2-5."
