When Duck gets fed up with his chores on the farm (he takes out the trash, mows the lawn, and grinds coffee beans), he decides he can run the place better than Farmer Brown and devises a farm election. His landslide win is quickly followed by the realization that running a farm is hard work--so Duck runs for governor and then president. Doreen Cronin (CLICK, CLACK, MOO) devises a clever introduction to politics for kids, who will love the funny story and Betsy Lewin’s colorful illustrations. Adults will chuckle at the all-too-familiar trappings of politics, not to mention the spot-on CNN spoof. County music singer Randy Travis’s drawl matches the text perfectly in a read-along that stands up to repeated listening. Vote Duck!
