Its Christmas time at Merry Farm and the animals are trying to keep calm but just how many quacks are there till Christmas?! They’re all excited to know as they prepare for the big day and wish for snow. Follow the young animals from the tiny chick to the mischievous calves as they moo, neigh, cheep and quack their way to Christmas day. Mark Spearing’s jolly rhyme is joined with bright, bold and colourful illustrations throughout from the talented Ed Eaves. This is a delightful, festive countdown to Christmas in true farmyard style. ~ Shelley Fallows - You can also find Shelley here.

Synopsis

How Many Quacks Till Christmas? by Mark Sperring

The animals of Merry Farm are so excited. They can't wait for Christmas. Join them for lots of festive fun as, with jolly oinks, happy neighs, woofs, cheeps, baas and moos, they get ready for THE BIG DAY.

'How many quacks till Christmas?' the ducklings want to know. 'How many quacks till Christmas?' and 'Quack, will there be snow?' Puppy is pouncing round the farmyard one evening, when he is assailed by various animals wanting to know how many quacks, moos, baas or neighs there are until Christmas. Luckily, the answer is - only one!

With lashings of Christmas joy, and much fun to be had with animal noises, this is the perfect funny Christmas gift. By a super-commercial author and illustrator pairing with combined sales of over 230,000 copies in the UK alone.
