From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- Two concise, interesting stories that show a small part of a farmer's day. As children follow the plot, they will also gain insight into Stan's work and see his devotion to animals. In the first story, Stan and his tractor, Duncan, break up the ice in the pond so that the ducks can be safe from a hungry fox who is closing in on them. Expressive prose and carefully detailed illustrations convey the story's humor, as well as the drama of the ducks' danger. Watercolors in predominantly blue, white, and gray reflect the winter's chill. In the second story, Stan must swerve Duncan into a tree to avoid hitting a curious calf. Then, as Veronica investigates the tree, she disturbs a nest of hornets. After stinging her, the hornets turn on Stan, who finds safety in Duncan's glass-enclosed cab. Mellow browns, golds, and oranges bring an autumn glow to the carefully created pictures of rural life. Illustrations reflect the action, amplified in both closeups and larger scenes; on one page, four rondeles show the hornets as they crawl over Duncan's hood and exhaust pipe, look into his windows, and try to sting his tires. Beautifully written text combining short and long sentences offers a realistic view of nature. --Nancy Seiner, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
