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?
The always-creative, always-hilarious, always-champions-of-corn-mazes pair who brought you "Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type"; "Giggle, Giggle, Quack"; and "Duck for President" have planned a terrific event. Step right up, folks.

Praise For Thump, Quack, Moo

"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
