What's Duck! About

Publisher Summary

In this funny nod to Chicken Little, a quiet afternoon on the farm might be the scene of a barnyard disaster waiting to happen. When Duck runs around the farm shouting “DUCK!” to the other animals, they grow exasperated as they haughtily explain to Duck which animal is which. Unfortunately, something is falling from the sky. But perhaps “DUCK!” isn’t the best warning. Perhaps what Duck should have said is . . . “RUN!”

Quotes from Duck!

  • “Now listen. You need to stop this nonsense right now. You have to understand that everyone is different. Some are ducks and some are not.”
