Duck misses his best friend, Goose. All of the farm animals try to cheer him up by playing Duck, Duck, Pig. How about Duck, Duck, Snake? Even Moose gives the familiar game a try, but none of it is fun for Duck. Worried that he won't have anyone to play with, Duck starts a new game. Hide and Go Seek!
This book contains great, earthy illustrations with a humorous twist. It is easy to see Duck's mood in each picture and to see why he isn't having a great deal of fun. The story is lively and entertaining and shows readers how friends can be there for each other when the chips are down. It conveys the message that trying something new is always an option.
