About the Author:

Martin Waddell is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest living writers of books for children. His work includes the multi-million selling Big and Little Bear series. He has won many awards, including the prestigious Hans Christian Andersen Award in 2004. Martin lives in Northern Ireland. Helen Oxenbury is one of the most popular and critically acclaimed illustrators of our time. Among her countless books for children is the Kate Greenaway Medal-winning Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. Helen lives in north London.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- Waddell's waddler is a real winner. In all kinds of weather, this downtrodden duck hauls in the sheep, tends the hens, and does the housework as well. ```How goes the work?''' the farmer repeatedly asks. ```Quack,''' the duck constantly replies--until all the barnyard animals convene to help the exhausted servant exact revenge and oust the lazy lout. Hilarious art masterfully captures the expressions of the put-upon duck, the supportive cast, and the slovenly ergophobic who reads the newspaper and chomps on bonbons in bed. All the while, the use of subtle shading and light reflect the passing of time on the farm and the serenity of the English countryside. Bled double-page spreads burst with life and vitality in a tale that has undertones of Animal Farm and The Bremen Town Musicians . With its lilting, large-print text and satisying resolution, it's as perfect for beginning readers as it is for story hours. --Trev Jones, School Library Journal
