Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-The infectious song from Guys and Dolls is delightfully celebrated in this illustrated version. Two endearing ducklings, one wearing overalls and the other in a pink skirt and headband, court one another while going through a busy day on the farm. The vibrantly colored single- and double-page paintings are packed with humorous details. For example, one scene shows the male duck driving a pickup truck while the female rides in the back with a load of pumpkins. One bump later, she and the pumpkins are lifted into the air. Next, she drives the truck while he rides in the back. For the lyrics "Barrel and a heap/and I'm talkin' in my sleep/about you./About you?/About you!/My heart is leapin'!/I'm having trouble sleepin'!" the illustrations show the duck lying wide awake in his bed, and then finally phoning his sleepy sweetheart on the next page. In the end, the couple drives off in a wind-up toy red convertible. Delicious endpapers show bushels and pecks of freshly harvested produce against a deep blue background. The words and music are appended. This merry romp is perfect for little "guys and dolls."-Bina Williams, Bridgeport Public Library, CT Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A duckling farmer tries to let his lady love know how he feels about her as they work the farm. He calls her in the middle of the night, skywrites X's and O's, serenades her, and finally takes her on vacation as the farm animals run amok. Wells's unmistakable pudgy, open-faced characters, flirty ducklings this time, cavort, bounce, race, and promenade around a farmyard in this bucolic interpretation of Loesser's song from the Broadway show Guys & Dolls. The text, adapted from the lyrics, winds across some pages, fills frames on others, and forms the frames on still others, all the while suggesting a musical rhythm. Toddlers will get caught up in the exuberance, and parents will wonder why they never noticed the Mother Goose quality of the song as they tap their feet. Backmatter includes the actual words and music for adventuresome presenters. (Picture book. 2-7)
