Duck on a Tractor

Duck on a Tractor 
By David Shannon
The Blue Sky Press, 2016. Picture Book

David Shannon’s Duck on a Bike ended with the daring duck eyeing a tractor. This hilarious sequel presents Duck’s adventure learning to drive the tractor. After all of the other farm animals join Duck on the tractor, they take a ride through town where several townspeople witness the strange sight. Each citizen lets out an exclamation while thinking something else. Marcine the Waitress says “Heavens to Betsy!” but really thinks “I like cats.” While Otis says “I must be seeing things!” but really thinks “Oh no—not again!” At the conclusion of the book the people are left wondering if they really saw what they think they saw.

This is a wonderfully funny book with detailed illustrations that is on par with the previous adventure. A great read aloud that kids will love. Read the pair together for some great laughs.
