Thump, Quack, Moo

Illustrated by Betsy Lewin

It's time for the Annual Corn Maze Festival and the farm is bursting with activity. The barn needs to be painted, the corn field needs a fence around it, and someone has to build a ticket booth for the hot air balloon rides. However, the animals are more interested in giving Farmer Brown a hard time than a helping hand - so, he is forced to make some compromises. He lets the chickens use his hammers. Cluck Whack! Cluck Whack!The chickens are excited. He lets the cows use his paintbrushes. Moo Thwack!The cows are excited - Duck isn't excited. But, he has a plan. As Farmer Brown designs his Statue of Liberty maze, Duck does some designing of his own. Guess who's in for a big surprise?
