Down on the farm, Duck's got a crazy idea—he's going to ride a bike! Walter Mayes's energetic narration of Duck's adventure captures his freewheeling exuberance, along with the other barnyard animals' reactions to Duck's ride. Offering a variety of voices, from the sheep (who sports a New England accent) to the cat (sarcastic and haughty), Mayes captures what each animal says ("Meow") along with what he or she thinks ("I wouldn't waste my time riding a bike!"). This production is not only packed full of fun animal noises, it also includes background sounds such as the bike's bell, along with a pleasant musical score that picks up the pace as Duck's ride picks up speed. Children will also enjoy Shannon's bright and lively illustrations as they listen. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2010]
