Review:
Duck lives with a lazy farmer who lies in bed all day while Duck does all the work. The other barnyard animals conspire to effect a horrendous - actually, a truly shocking - revolution. The subversive fable, so exuberantly illustrated in Helen Oxenbury's stunning and powerful watercolors, is a model of the synthesis of story, word and picture.
