A duck's truck gets stuck in the muck, and he enlists the help of a frog, a sheep and a goat to get back on track.

There is rhyming through the whole book. Early Childhood will enjoy this book the most. It is about a duck driving a truck and gets stuck in the mud and calls all the other animals to help him. When they get him out, duck drives off and forget that his friends are stuck now.

I enjoyed this book for a couple of reasons. The first reason I like it is the writing. Many of the lines rhyme which causes the book to flow very well and makes it very interesting. One line line in the book is, "This is a Sheep, driving home in a Jeep. 'Get out of the way,' he yells with a beep." I think that rhyming lines help to make books, like this one, more fun and entertaining to the reader. Another reason I like the book is because the illustrations are interesting throughout the book. There are pictures of each and every struggle that the duck faces and everyone that tries to help him. The pictures are able to represent the words very well because there are two different pictures per page which shows more of what is happening on each page. The big idea of this book is to be patient and appreciate all of the help people offer.

This is a very cute book, I like all the rhyming in the book. The book also shows all of duck's friend's helping him to get unstuck from the mud. They eventually get the truck unstuck and duck can continue on his way.
