Thump, Quack , Moo: A Whacky Adventure

This is a rare derivative book that actually exceeds the original. Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type was a fun book. However, the many other books by the same authors were mere variations on the same theme.
Thump, Quack, Moo, however, tells a great original story. Here, the farmer is enlisting his animals to build a giant corn-field maze. All the animals help out - except for the mice who are taking a meteorology correspondence course. The Duck reluctantly decides to help out, but spends the nighttime hours subterfuging the Statue of Liberty maze. It finally reaches the climax as they go up in a hot air balloon to see the finished finished product.

We made the mistake of reading this as a final "bedtime" book. The kids could just not stop laughing. It is a great, funny book.
