by David Shannon (Author, Illustrator) Bestselling Caldecott Honor artist David Shannon is back with a companion book to Duck on a Bike!
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. Picture book perfect!
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 townright 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.
