3 years later and the Duck part still quacks me up.
This version of the book features 3 stories. Its' got the original Click Clack Moo, then 2 sequels. One is centered on the Duck being mischievous while Farmer Brown is away. This story just feels forced to me. It's not nearly as good as the original and it's just trying to capitalize on the Duck character from the first one. The second is about the barnyard animals sneaking off to the fair to enter a single contest. It's not quite as good as the original Click Clack Moo, but it's still very funny.
All in all the 3 story version of this series is worth getting as the cost isn't much more than any of the 3 books by themselves. The Duck story is readable as a bedtime story. It's not bad. It's just not on the same level as the original.
So glad we made this purchase, our GD enjoys being read to and these books are so fun. I also like the "collection" book, as opposed to 3 separate books.
