Duck, Duck, Moose
A little girl runs through the farm calling out for Duck, Duck, and Moose. She finds them playing cards. She tells them Goose is missing. She can’t find Goose anywhere. The four of them take off, shouting for Goose. They jump into a tractor pulling a trailer and drive across the farm. They ask other barnyard animals they run across. Sheep, Lamb, and Horse indicate which way they saw Goose going, but when they go that way, they find a locked gate is keeping them from going very far. The key for the lock is hanging high up on a tree. Duck and Duck climb up on top of each other on top of Moose, but they disturb a beehive. That’s not good! Will they get the key? Will they ever find Goose?
Mary Sullivan has written this silly story in perfect rhyme and a strong meter. Her illustrations convey a great sense of fun and her characters have terrific expressions. The youngest listeners will love all the silliness (What is Moose doing on a farm anyway?) and the rhyming, metered text as well as the silly details in the illustrations. Little ones will love this book.
