About this title


On one very windy day, the quack gets blown right out of the duck, and Bonnie Bumble has to struggle in order to simply stand up, in a humorous tale of a rather odd and extremely windy day.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-So hard does the wind blow across Bonnie Bumble's farmyard that the duck's "quack!" ends up attached to the lamb, the lamb's "baaa!" to the pig, etc. In Craig's windswept watercolors, the noises are set into dialogue balloons with actual strings attached. Bonnie, a stubby child in patched red overalls, industriously gathers and reattaches the sounds to their rightful owners. Beginning readers and even pre-readers will appreciate the fundamental silliness here, but may wonder why the animal sounds are blown about at random rather than downwind, or how the rising breeze in the last scene can almost bowl Bonnie over, but leaves the animals, and their balloons, unaffected. Despite its appeal, this story earns low marks for logical consistency. Stick with Charles Causley's "Quack!" Said the Billy-goat, (Lippincott, 1986; o.p.).
