A hardworking duck is rescued from life with a lazy old farmer in this classic tale of justice from acclaimed Irish writer Martin Waddell. A perfect introduction to the Irish language for young children! There once was a duck who had the bad luck to live with a lazy farmer. While the poor duck works and works, through rain and hail, the farmer lazes about ... barking out commands from his bed. But, one day, the other animals decide to take action! It's time to stand up to that lazy farmer! This story of heroism and comradeship, with illustrations that are as stunningly beautiful and powerful as they are truly funny, make this new Irish edition a book to be read again and again ... and again!
