On No-Man Farm, Orvie rules. What makes that lazy pig the farmer? Orvie can walk on two legs. And that makes him better than all the other animals. All except Duck. “I have two legs, Orvie. Can I be the farmer now?” she asks.“You’re too little, Duck,” says Orvie. “You can’t do BIG work.” “I can do BIG work!” Duck says. More like BIG MISCHIEF! Award-winning author and illustrator D. B. Johnson adds a lively new chapter to George Orwell’s classic Animal Farm. This time, a duck brings a joyful transformation to the farm—and to Orvie! In this picture book, as well as the ones he has written about Henry David Thoreau, D. B. Johnson continues, with simplicity and humor, to draw children to the complex ideas in great works of literature.
