      • content: When Duck gets fed up with his chores on the farm (he takes out the trash, mows the lawn, and grinds coffee beans), he decides he can run the place better than Farmer Brown and devises a farm election. His landslide win is quickly followed by the realization that running a farm is hard work--so Duck runs for governor and then president. Doreen Cronin (CLICK, CLACK, MOO) devises a clever introduction to politics for kids, who will love the funny story and Betsy Lewin's colorful illustrations. Adults will chuckle at the all-too-familiar trappings of politics, not to mention the spot-on CNN spoof. County music singer Randy Travis's drawl matches the text perfectly in a read-along that stands up to repeated listening. Vote Duck!

        February 16, 2004
        As the run-up to the 2004 presidential election gathers momentum, it appears that George W. Bush may have more than Democrats on his tail. Duck, the ever-scheming star of Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type
        has thrown his feathers in the ring. Fed-up with the drudgery of his barnyard chores, Duck decides to officially buck authority and hold an election to determine who should be in charge. The web-footed wonder narrowly defeats Farmer Brown, but soon discovers that running a farm is not all it's cracked up to be. Duck plans a move to greener pastures by entering—and eventually winning—the race for governor. However, for the ambitious feathered hero, only the highest office in the land will do, and he charts a course for the Oval Office, which also has its drawbacks. Though Cronin's latest Duck tale introduces the basic mechanics of the election process, it lacks many of the silly high jinks and clever plot turns that gave its predecessors their charm. A few nods to past presidents appear in both text and art (Nixon, Clinton, G.H.W. Bush), offering older readers a knowing wink. The focus on Duck's dissatisfaction and loneliness at the top makes the story line perhaps better suited to adults, even as Lewin's chunky-outlined watercolors continue to cater to the younger crowd with her usual dashes of humor and daffy sweetness. Her depictions of the campaign-trail motorcades, parades and town meetings are a hoot. All ages. (Mar.)
