Review: Mr Duck Means Business

Mr. Duck is a businessman. He has so much to do that he follows a schedule. He likes his quiet, cover - "Mr Duck Means Business" - Tammi Sauerunchanging life. Then one day life changes with a splash. A pig cannonballs into Mr. Duck’s pond. Soon a cow, a horse, goat, lamb and some chicks turn the peacefulness into a party.

“The water got wild. The scenery got crowded. And the peace and quiet?
It.
Was.
Gone.
Mr. Duck tapped.
He flapped.
He totally SNAPPED.
`QUA-A-AA-A-ACKKK!”

He orders them out of his pond. Soon it is quiet. Too quiet. Mr Duck is bored. Perhaps he is lonely. He makes a small change in his schedule and makes some friends.

Tammi Sauer’s Mr. Duck Means Business is a fun read. Kids will giggle at Mr. Duck’s determination, not to mention the fun the other animals have when they invade the pond.

Jeff Mack’s illustrations are colorful and amusing. I love the expressions on the animals faces.
