A cute story perfect for any age, but an older child will appreciate the referenced iconic images from some of our own past presidents.

Love this series but especially liked the way elections were portrayed in this book. Would use this with early elementary students during election season.

Prophetic. Unfortunately the duck has more sense that the narcissist in chief.

Huh. Well certainly better than I expected. But hard to classify. Parody? Ironic? Not exactly a bedtime storybook. It certainly has attitude when it comes to explaining what it means to protest, run for an elected office, take power, do the job, and then decide what to do next.

Very well done. Duck first goes after being the boss of the farmer and when that turns out kind of hard and gives him a headache, he then proceeds to move up the later - all the way up to president.

This book was annoying. I thought Click Clack Moo was cute, but this just grated. Perhaps it’s what the times have done to me.

Not the best book I've ever read. A funny concept, yes, but not one I would pick to read over and over again. Not a bad one for election season though. I never intended to read this one, but because we were on "Letter Q' of our Alphabet Series for story time and I couldn't get "Little Quack" shipped to us like I wanted, I improvised with all duck books because ducks quack.
