Praise For Mr. Duck Means Business (Paula Wiseman Books)

"Sauer’s dour and disciplined duck and his rhyming hissy fits will most definitely entertain. Mack’s furry and feathered wide-eyed animals rendered in ebullient acrylic are a great match for this fine farmyard fable." - KIRKUS

"Sauer’s clever use of language–“Mr. Duck grumbled. He mumbled. He flip-flop-fumbled”–will engage children and help soften the getting-along message in a humorous and likable way. Mack picks up on this note, filling the pages with color and action. The expressive characters (especially Mr. Duck) provide amusing touches in illustrations that sprawl across the pages. A pleasing book that offers a viable avenue for discussion about how sometimes compromise is the best way to go.–School Library Journal
