Good News, Bad News
Mr. Duck Means Business
by Tammi Sauer, illustrated by Jeff Mack
Grades PreK-2 32 pages Simon & Schuster January 2011 Hardcover    

Mr. Duck is very set in his ways, and he loves peace and quiet. He follows a set daily schedule and has a nice, serene pond all to himself. That all changes one hot afternoon when a group of barn animals invade his territory. Looking for a way to cool off, the critters all jump into Mr. Duckís pond.

Mr. Duck is not a happy camper, and he makes sure all his uninvited visitors know that they are not welcome. Everyone gets the message, and soon the pond is nice and quiet again - in fact, it is too quiet. Guess who realizes now that having a few other animals around isnít a bad thing?

Being a duck (and we all know how smart ducks are!), Mr. Duck came up with the ideal way to enjoy his new friends without giving up his old lifestyle. (Naturally Iím not going to share that little secret with you. Youíll just have to read the book.)

This endearing story about unexpected friendship will quickly become one of your childís favorite books. The illustrations are fun and embedded in the story itself is a nice message about sharing and enjoying time with others.
