Martin Waddell's uplifting modern fable and Helen Oxenbury's humor and pathos make this a very special collaboration.

Farmer Duck isn't your average duck. This duck cooks and cleans, tends the fields, and cares for the other animals on the farm--all because the owner of the farm is too lazy to do these things himself. But when Farmer Duck finally collapses from exhaustion, the farmyard animals come to the rescue with a simple but heroic plan.

Those seemingly endless pages of the duck toiling away on the farm while the farmer sits back and yells out to the duck, "how's the work going?", were ABSOLUTELY HEARTBREAKING. HEART. BREAKING. Especially that last page where duck has been worked completely to the bone. Nevertheless, a lovely story where duck's friends pitch in to help make duck's life easier because they all love duck.

Also reminded me of Animal Farm.

This is a lovely book for younger readers. It has repetition and and engaging story line. Martin Waddell has plenty of other picture books aimed at the same age and so this lends itself to a great author study.
