And a peck!
And a heap!
Mutual affection grows between two flirty ducklings as they bill and coo around the farmyard in Rosemary Wells's young and sassy interpretation of a beloved Frank Loesser song. This calls for hugs around the neck while reading, so be sure to share it with someone special.

PreSchool-Grade 2 - The infectious song from Guys and Dolls is delightfully celebrated in this illustrated version. Two endearing ducklings, one wearing overalls and the other in a pink skirt and headband, court one another while going through a busy day on the farm. The vibrantly colored single- and double-page paintings are packed with humorous details. For example, one scene shows the male duck driving a pickup truck while the female rides in the back with a load of pumpkins. One bump later, she and the pumpkins are lifted into the air. Next, she drives the truck while he rides in the back. For the lyrics "Barrel and a heap/and I'm talkin' in my sleep/about you./About you?/About you!/My heart is leapin'!/I'm having trouble sleepin'!" the illustrations show the duck lying wide awake in his bed, and then finally phoning his sleepy sweetheart on the next page. In the end, the couple drives off in a wind-up toy red convertible. Delicious endpapers show bushels and pecks of freshly harvested produce against a deep blue background. The words and music are appended. This merry romp is perfect for little "guys and dolls." - Bina Williams, Bridgeport Public Library, CT
