Farmer Duck

Written by Martin Waddell

Illustrated by Helen Oxenbury

Farmer Duck Synopsis

There once was a duck who had the bad luck to live with a lazy farmer. While the duck worked, the farmer lay in bed - until one day the other animals decided to take action! The result is highly satisfying - Animal Farm for young children - and lots of fun to read aloud.

Farmer Duck Press Reviews

Helen Oxenbury's illustrations speak volumes... They're a perfect match for Martin Waddell's equally excellent text. * Books for Keeps * Marvellously expressive pictures and a satisfying text make this the outstanding picture book of the year. * The Sunday Times * This book will be bought for years. * The Independent on Sunday *
