Ages 2-5. Mishap upon hilarious mishap follows one upon another when Fix-It Duck sets out to repair what he believes is his leaking roof. First Duck borrows a ladder from Sheep. But the skylight on Sheep's trailer is stuck, so well-intentioned Duck attempts to fix it. Instead, he breaks the window. Now Duck must tow Sheep's trailer into Goat's shed, where it will be out of the rain. But how to tow the trailer? Duck saws off the ladder he borrowed and uses it as a hitch, which works just fine until a swerve on a curve sends Duck's truck off in one direction--and the trailer in another. And so the slapstick fun proceeds, all of it presented in vibrantly colored frames of funny cartoon art that is well matched to Alborough's quick-footed rhyme: "'Look up the hill,' gasps Goat in dismay. 'It's Sheep,' quacks Duck, 'And he's coming this way!'" This entertaining adventure is sure to be a read-aloud favorite; try pairing it with Duck's previous escapade Duck in the Truck (1999) or one of Nancy Shaw's wacky sheep books, such as Sheep in a Jeep (1986).
