Thump, Quack, Moo

A Whacky Adventure (with audio recording)

Illustrated by Betsy Lewin

About The Book

Step right up for this farmyard festive tale from New York Times bestselling duo Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin, now available as an eBook with audio!

It’s time for the annual Corn Maze Festival. The farm is bursting with activity.

Cluck. Whack!

The chickens build a fence around the cornfield.

Moo. Thwack!

The cows give the barn a fresh coat of paint.

Thump. Quack!

Duck builds the ticket booth for the hot-air balloon ride.

Everyone is excited. Well, Duck is not excited, exactly. But he has a plan. As Farmer Brown designs the corn maze for the festival, Duck does some designing of his own. Guess who’s in for a big surprise?

Raves and Reviews

"Once again, Cronin & Lewin get everything right, from the perfectly paced deadpan narrative, to the amusing characterizations, to the vibrant brush and watercolor cartoons that play off and extend the text's humor...Fans will not be disappointed." -- School Library Journal

"It's another interspecies battle of wits-and read-aloud winner-from a celebrated duo...This entry...proves that this team continues to operate in top form...[T]he subsidiary characters garner plenty of giggles, too." -- Publishers Weekly
