Farmer Duck (Board Book)

This funny book is set on a farm. But where is the farmer? He’s so lazy he lies in bed all day. He bullies poor Duck into doing all the work, and doesn’t care how tired Duck gets. The other farm animals think it’s very unfair. And when Duck collapses in tears, they decide to strike back… Watch out, Farmer! Such a classic: beautiful pictures from Helen Oxenbury, and a touching story about kindness and standing up for your friends.
