When Farmer Brown leaves his brother in charge, he
warns Bob to keep an eye on the duck, because “he’s trouble.” Bob follows the farmer’s written instructions to the letter, but are they authentic? Astute readers will
know who’s really writing them from the animated,
cartoon-like illustrations. The animals were first
introduced in Click, Clack, Moo (Simon and Schuster,
2000), another barnyard chuckler.
