Farmer Duck

(1991)
A Picture Book by

 
 
The winner of the Smarties Book Prize and the Children's Illustrated Book of the Year, this story is about a duck who lived with a lazy old farmer. The duck did all the work while the farmer stayed in bed all day. Then the other animals decided to take action!Amazon.co.uk ReviewA lazy and fat farmer spends all day in bed, eating chocolates and reading the newspaper, while his poor duck has to do all the work on the farm. One evening, the exhausted duck collapses in tears, to be comforted by chickens. The farm animals are very fond of the duck, and outraged by the farmer's behaviour, so they hatch a plan.

This engaging cross between Cinderella and George Orwell's Animal Farm, won the Smarties Book Prize, was British Book Awards Children's Illustrated Book of the Year and was also Highly Commended for the Kate Greenaway Medal. (Ages 4 to 8)--Lisa Gee
