THUMP, QUACK, MOO- Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin

Hurray!  Duck is back! 

It's time for the annual Corn Maze Festival. Farmer Brown has big plans  to build a Statue of Liberty corn maze, and has enlisted the help of all of his animal friends to complete this project. The chickens are building the fence around the corn maze. The cows are painting the barn. Only Duck is less than eager to help, and has to be threatened with the loss of his special-order organic duck food, if he doesn't help.  

As always, though, there is a twist. Each day, Farmer Brown sketches, measures, graphs, and mows. Each night, Duck, with the help of night-vision glasses and a glow-in-the-dark ruler sketches, measures, graphs, and mows. The end results are hilarious. 

I bought THUMP, QUACK, MOO this afternoon, and read it to my boys at the dinner table tonight. My boys have absolutely no doubt that their mother is a total nerd, but secretly, they loved Duck's newest adventure!

I love picturing your two football jocks at the dinner table with a picture book read aloud! You are so subversive!
