About the Book



Pleased with his success in riding a bike, Duck decides to drive the farm tractor, and invites all the other farm animals along for the ride--all the way to town.



Book Synopsis



Bestselling Caldecott Honor artist David Shannon tells the story of a determined duck who decides to jump on a tractor and drive it around the barnyard and through town, with hilarious consequences!

David Shannon's wildly popular, award-winning Duck on a Bike left children begging him to tell them another story about Duck after seeing him pictured alongside a shiny red tractor. Now Duck is back and turning the farm upside down! Flushed with the success of his trailblazing bike ride around the farm, Duck decides he's ready to drive the tractor. As in the bestselling Duck on a Bike, all the barnyard animals share their humorous comments as they watch Duck do the unthinkable. Then, one by one, they join him on the tractor for a ride! But what happens when Duck drives the big red tractor through town, past the popular diner where all the locals are having lunch? What will those folks really think when they see Duck and all the other animals riding around on Farmer O'Dell's tractor? Filled with entertaining detail and sly jokes, readers will pore over each picture again and again. Perfect for reading aloud!



From the Back Cover



Down on the farm, Duck sometimes got wild ideas. Once he rode a bike all around the barnyard. It was fun! Then he spotted the big red tractor.

"I bet I can drive a tractor," he said.

Duck jumped on. At first it moved very slowly, and it jerked a lot, but it was exciting! "Climb on, everybody!" Duck shouted to all the animals.

Before long, Cow, Chicken, Sheep, Dog, Goat, and the others were going for a ride through the middle of town--right past the crowded diner.

"I must be seeing things!" said a man named Otis. "Holy cow!" hollered Manny the Cook. What would happen next?

Come along and join the fun as award-winner David Shannon artfully combines bold, bright illustrations with an irresistible story that begs to be read again and again.



Review Quotes




* "Characters' exaggerated facial expressions and body language will keep kids giggling, while dynamic compositions and changing points of view add to the pitch-perfect comedic timing... An energetic, laugh-out-loud tale that's a worthy companion to Duck's first big adventure." -- School Library Journal, starred reviewPraise for Duck on a Bike: "Shannon makes the most of awkward appendages on wheels and handlebars, and deftly balances clean compositions with just the right amount of detail. Varying perspectives -- including the chicken's-eye-view of Duck's bike wheel looming large -- provide plenty of good-natured dash. Add to all this the abundant opportunity for youngsters to chime in with barnyard responses ('M-o-o-o'; 'Cluck! Cluck!'), and the result is one swell read-aloud, packed with freewheeling fun." -- Publishers Weekly"This delightful story will have youngsters chiming in on the repeated phrases and predicting, in no time, what will happen next, and the many animal sounds provide ample opportunities for role-playing. Shannon's brightly colored spreads are filled with humor." -- School Library JournalPraise for Bugs in My Hair!: "Shannon's informative and amusing text lets readers know that everyone feels embarrassed and grossed out by lice, and his gigantic, googly-eyed bugs add to both the humor and the yuck factor." -- The Horn Book"Libraries everywhere should have this book, as this perennial problem crops up in just about every community." -- School Library Journal
