Farmer Duck

Martin Waddell. Candlewick Press (MA), $6.99 (26pp) ISBN 978-0-7636-2167-4

Martin Waddell and Helen Oxenbury work their storytelling magic in Farmer Duck. A duck does all the work for a lazy farmer until a rebellion by the other barnyard animals sets them all free. ""By book's end, young readers will flap for joy right along with the endearing web-footed hero,"" said PW in a starred review.
