Farmer Brown is off on a vacation but before he leaves, he warns his brother Bob, who is caring for the animals, to 'keep an eye on Duck. He's trouble.'

Farmer Brown also tells his brother, 'I wrote everything down for you. Just follow my instructions and everything will be fine.'

Of course, neither man thought that Duck would overhear this conversation. Grabbing a pencil, Duck wrote up his own list of instructions. Before you can say fast delivery, seven pizzas are ordered for the animals' evening meal, the pigs are enjoying a bubble bath compliments of Bob, and the cows have selected their favorite flick for movie night.

When Farmer Brown calls to see how things are going and hears 'Giggle, giggle, quack, giggle, moo, giggle, oink ...' on the other end of the line, he realizes Duck has taken over and his vacation is over.

Now available in a board book version for children three and older, this humorous story will have your child giggling along with Duck and the rest of his barnyard friends. This series has been a big hit with preschoolers and is perfect for beginning readers as well. There are a number of titles to choose from and they are all very entertaining.
