Given all the disasters that befall the Greenstalk farm, it’s a wonder that it’s still in business. In the fourth book in the series that began with Chickens to the Rescue, it’s Ernie the duck’s turn to “help out.” So when the pumpkins must get to market on Monday, duck leaps into the driver’s seat of the vintage pickup truck (“I guess we can turn them into pumpkin pie,” says Farmer Greenstalk of the aftermath). Duck’s attempts to retrieve a calf from the rafters of the barn, babysit chickens, and serve as a scarecrow are equally fraught with disaster—and just as certain to have kids laughing through a week’s worth of barnyard chaos. Ages 4–8. (Feb.)
