Part of the Click, Clack... series.

									Happy first birthday, Little Duck! Everyone wants to look their best for the party. But Little Duck has never had a birthday before-so how better to learn how to prepare than to do what all the other animals do! The sheep trim their wool-so Little Duck trims her feathers. The pigs need a mud bath-so Little Duck quish and quashes, too. All over the barnyard Little Duck snips, slurps, squishes, and shimmy shakes herself ready until...WHOOPS! It's party picture time-and Little Duck is a big mess. No matter-it's not something Farmer Brown's frosted maple cake can't fix!

"Cronin merrily describes their preparations in repeating language...Lewin adeptly portrays the story's physical comedy in swoopy mixed media scenes...It's goofy birthday fun that will probably have some readers shimmy shaking and slurp a lurping along with the animals." - Publishers Weekly

"Maurice England's deep, drawling narration is complemented by twanging banjo background music that helps establish the festive vibe." - School Library Journal

"...Maurice England's warm and exuberant narration relaying animal shenanigans through repetition and wordplay make this perfect for library storytime or home entertainment." - Booklist
