Farmer Duck is no ordinary duck. He cooks and cleans, tends the fields, and cares for the other animals on the farm — all because the farm owner is too lazy to do these things himself. But when Farmer Duck finally collapses from exhaustion, sleepy and weepy and tired, his farmyard friends come to the rescue.
Celebrate twenty-five years of a tale of sweet justice in this anniversary edition.
