Summary

Summary

Farmer Brown, oh-so-sleepy, has a new, adorable--and LOUD--duckling to deal with in this addition to the award-winning Click, Clack series from the New York Times bestselling team who brought you Click, Clack, Moo and Click, Clack, Boo!

There's more trouble on the farm, but Duck has nothing to do with it, for once. This time the trouble is a four-ounce puff of fluff who just won't go to sleep, and whose play-with-me "peeps" are keeping the whole barnyard awake with him.

Peep!
Peep!
Peep!

How do you get a baby duck to hit the hay? Poor Farmer Brown will find out--and Duck might just find himself in trouble after all...

Eventually she found herself using her journalism background in the world of publishing. and she turned her sights toward law and attended St. john's University School of Law. She went on to work as an attorney in a Manhattan Law firm. She wrote her book Click, Clack, Moo, Cows That Type in 1995, shortly after the death of her father. It took another five years, however, before the book was published. She stated in her bio that this book was not only her first published book but also the easiest book to write, taking her only about 20 minutes to jot down the story. The book went on to become a Caldecott Honor Book. While the book eventually met with great success, publishers rejected it repeatedly for several years until a publisher eventually called her with the news that it would be published. Her success as a children's author continued with books such as Diary of a Worm published in 2003 and winner of Parent's Choice Award Slver 2003 Picture Book, Diary of a Spider published in 2003 and Rescue Bunnies. She made the 2013 New York Times High Profiles List with her title Click, Clack, Boo!: A Tricky Treat.

Booklist Review

If Farmer Brown thought Duck was trouble, just wait until Baby Duck arrives! Baby Duck hatches with a crack, crack, crack to a chorus of moo! baa! oink! The exuberant little thing is delighted and delightful as she laughs, waddles, and plays. But when the other animals begin to yawn (new parents will relate), the bright yellow critter simply will not sleep: peep, peep, peep. The text features a bouncy, playful rhythm and rhyme, setting a quick pace, while loose watercolors capture the comical antics. After the animals have tried everything they can think of to send Baby Duck to sleep, such as a lullaby and a cozy blanket (the sheep knit one), Duck comes up with a plan effective, if a bit destructive. All's quiet in the barnyard . . . until Farmer Brown wakes up, that is! An irresistible addition to the Click, Clack, Moo series.--McDermott, Jeanne Copyright 2014 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

After a lively baby duck is born on the farm, the animals from Click, Clack, Moo and its sequels try to turn its "peep peep peep" into "peep peep... sleep" at bedtime. Lewin's always expressive watercolors show sleep-deprived hens and sheep rocking the duckling to sleep and knitting it a blanket, but it's Duck who arrives at a solution that will be familiar to parents who have reached for their car keys in order to lull a restless baby to sleep. A sweet-natured addition to the series, and one that will leave readers giggling, thanks to a great closing gag. Ages 4-8. Agent: Holly McGhee, Pippin Properties. (Feb.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-K-From the team responsible for such classic barnyard escapades as Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type (2000) and Giggle, Giggle, Quack (2002, both S. & S.) comes a new installment about the indomitable Duck. This time, he receives a very special package (the title page, recto, and verso show the arrival of the truck that delivers a crate with a duck egg inside). The entire farm quietly watches the momentous hatching. Soon, the egg cracks and a fuzzy yellow duckling emerges, breaking the silence with loud and insistent "Peep peep peeps." The increasingly exhausted animals take turns trying to calm the relentless Baby Duck, but nothing works, until Duck notices and pitches in. Giving tractor rides back and forth across the farm puts the little one to sleep, though in true Duck style, it wreaks havoc for the farmer. Lewin's characteristic watercolors are as funny and expressive as ever. Though not quite as involved as some of Duck's previous adventures, this is a delightful bedtime story for fans familiar with Duck and little ones who might be new to these wonderfully silly tales.-Yelena Alekseyeva-Popova, formerly at Chappaqua Library, NY (c) Copyright 2014.
