A hardworking duck is rescued from life with a lazy farmer in this award-winning picture book classic from Owl Babies author, Martin Waddell, and Bear Hunt illustrator, Helen Oxenbury. In this Kate Greenaway Medal and Kurt Maschler Award-winning modern classic, two of the most celebrated picture book creators of our time tell the story of a hardworking duck, who has the very bad luck of living with a lazy farmer.
The duck cooks and cleans, tends the fields and cares for the other animals on the farm - and all while the famer lies in bed!
That is until the day the animals decide to take action ...and come to the rescue with a simple, but heroic plan.
