It’s the night before Christmas and all through the farm, not a creature is stirring, not even a...duck? Farmer Brown is busy decorating his home in preparation for Santa’s arrival on Christmas Eve. All seems calm in the barnyard, but Farmer Brown isn’t the only one who is getting ready...Once again, Duck has gotten the whole barnyard STUCK in quite a predicament. Will anyone be able to un-stuck Duck and save Christmas?
As is the custom with other children's picture book series, it was only a matter of time before the Click Clack Moo animals became a Christmas story. In this installment of the Click Clack Moo books, we are treated to duck getting stuck in a chimney for reasons that are a bit vague. Just like other Christmas books, these kinds of stories often feel uninspired and gimmicky, which made it my least favorite in the series. It's not that the story was terrible it was just a bit Ho! Ho! Hum.
