Farmer Duck, Paperback
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


In this Kate Greenaway Medal and Kurt Maschler Award-winning modern classic, two of the most celebrated picture book creators of our time tell the story of a hardworking duck, who has the very bad luck of living with a lazy farmer.

The duck cooks and cleans, tends the fields and cares for the other animals on the farm - and all while the famer lies in bed!

That is until the day the animals decide to take action ...and come to the rescue with a simple, but heroic plan.

Farmer duck slaves away on a farm while the farmer does nothing. The other farm animals rebel, saving the duck and forcing the farmer to work.

Review by

Duck works for a lazy farmer who makes him do all the work, until the animals come up with a plan to get rid of the farmer. A very funny story good to read aloud with little ones, who will enjoy participating with the repetitive text.
