Waterstones Says

The storytelling giant that is Michael Morpurgo teams up with acclaimed illustrator Sam Usher to deliver an endearing tale of a city boy taking a shine to a farmyard duck.

The classic story of finding fun on the farm from the nation's favourite storyteller, gorgeously re-illustrated by Sam Usher.

From Sir Michael Morpurgo comes a classic story of one small boy, and one very lucky duck...

Sam is a city boy through and through - and isn't looking forward to his school trip to Nethercott Farm at all. But busy days of farm work, animals and learning all about nature weave their magic - and when Sam finds a duck about to be dinner, he is determined to save him. But how?

This warm and magical story is gloriously brought to life by the incredible illustrative talent of Sam Usher, and is set on the real-life Nethercott Farm - a member of Farms for City Children - the charity that offers urban children from all over the country the chance to live and work together on a real farm and experience the magic of the English countryside.
