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!

MEDIA REVIEWS
By book's end, young readers will flap for joy right along with the endearing web-footed heros. * Publishers Weekly, starred review *
The subversive fable is so exuberantly illustrated by Helen Oxenbury's stunningly powerful watercolors that it is, in fact, an ideal nursery book--a model of the synthesis of story, word, and picture. * Mothering Magazine *
Waddell's narration is a marvel of simplicity and compact grace; Oxenbury's soft pencil and watercolor illustrations have the comic impact of masterly cartoons, while her sweeping color and light are gloriously evocative of the English farm scene . . . A book with all the marks of a nursery classic. * Kirkus Reviews, starred review *
Not just a classic because of its animal liberation theme. It sends a strong message to kids about subscribing to a hard work ethic and what it means to be a true comrade. * Vegbooks.org *
