One day down on the farm, Duck got a wild idea. I bet I could ride a bike, he thought. He waddled over to where the boy parked his bike, climbed on and began to ride. At first he rode slowly and he wobbled a lot, but it was fun Duck rode past Cow and waved to her. Hello, Cow said Duck. Moo, said Cow. But what she thought was, A duck on a bike? That's the silliest thing I've ever seen
And so Duck rides past sheep, horse, and all the other barnyard animals.
