  • Archit Ojha
    Hold on, you say there is a duck in the fridge!Oh my, this one cracks me up all the time. Listening bedtime stories from your father is adventurous when he narrates some amusing incidences of his childhood days. This time, it will be about ducks. There are ducks everywhere! Time to call : 1-800-DUCK-B-GONE.

  • Cheryl Gladfelter
    In this book there's an illustration of a duck wearing a book as a hat, with the most gleeful expression. That duck may be my spirit animal.

    A father tells his son the story of why he always reads Mother Goose to him at bedtime. "One night, when I was a kid, I found a duck in the fridge." So, how do you get rid of a duck? Call 1-800-DUCK-B-GONE? No, they only make the problem worse by sending sheep to scare away the ducks? They weren't scary enough. The dogs just stayed up all night playing cards. The cows threw a wild party. Maybe scaring them wasn't the answer. Maybe reading them a ...

    DUCK IN THE FRIDGE – come on the title is awesome! *hee hee* This story is all out fun. Every time I turned the page (after I had calmed my giggling down), I’d giggle again! Mr. Mack has written a very funny, wacky book about a dad telling his son about a time when he was younger and had to get someone who didn’t want to fall asleep to fall asleep! His illustrations are cute and light-hearted. Ducks are just funny too! I like all of the lit...

    A dad answers his son's question, Why do you always read me Mother Goose before bed?, by explaining how when he was a boy, he found hungry intrusive ducks in the fridge. So he mail-ordered sheep that just encouraged the ducks' bad behavior, then mail-ordered fun-loving dogs bought to scare the sheep that were purchased to frighten the ducks, and, finally, procured a herd of mail-order wild-partying cattle to unnerve the dogs that were bought to s...

    In my wildest dreams I've never opened anything inside my home expecting to find something alive. (I did open a bathroom vanity one time to find a mouse waving at me, but that's another tale for another time.) Those beings are much better at existing in the outside world. For this reason Duck In The Fridge (Two Lions, September 2, 2014) written and illustrated by Jeff Mack is hilarious before you've even read the story.My full recommendation: htt...
  • Margaux
    All about how mother goose started, this book reminded me of a picture book version of Fortunately, the Milk because it's a crazy dad story.
  • Jennifer
    Short and sweet. A lovely book if your children like farm animals.
  • mary kailihiwa
    Not exactly...Not exactly what I thought was going to be a quality night time read. Story in itself is o.k., illustrations are too busy.
  • Dorothy

  • Megan Peirona
    This story is a great bed-time comedy about a little boy who opens the fridge, and finds some ducks! The ducks are quite annoying and disruptive of his bedtime routine, so he over the phone orders another kind of "scary" animal in attempt to scare them away. The "scary" animal isn't scary at all, in fact its a sheep. The boy continues to call for scary animals to be delivered, but none of them are scary and the animal party just keeps getting big...
  • Viviane Elbee
    This is a really funny and silly book with goofy illustrations (and a goofy plot).I love that you can call 1-800-Ducks-B-Gone.It had several fun puns which the kids had fun repeating to their friends. It's also good for beginner readers that are about a level 2-3 on the numbered early reader books. My niece was able to read and sound out most of these words.
  • Venetia
    Good night readI enjoyed reading this to my toddler because it kept his interest. He didn't turn away once. He liked the pictures of the animals as well as my animated reading of the text. Not too short or too long, which is also a good thing. I recommend it.
  • Deborah
    Entertaining and cleverMy 2 1/2 granddaughter loves this story and wants to read it every night. This is one I don't mind reading repetitively as there is humor for the adult readers.
  • Chris Gibson
    I wasn't keen on this one. It got to the point where half way through the book I asked Noah if he would like me to stop reading.But he shouted at me and said he was enjoying it. So hey what do I know.A 5 year old thinks its brilliant. A boring 32 year old thinks it's not that great!
  • Amber Griffin
    This book would be a fun book to keep in a classroom library. I remember I've read books from Jeff before, but never this. I recognized the writing style and the illustration style. This would be a fun read that would definitely catch children's attention.
  • Eric J. Mogensen
    Nicely done, with a pro-reading messageMy 3 year old is asking me to read it again right now, otherwise I'd leave a longer review. Cheers!
  • Alyssa Smith
    My three year old couldn't stop laughing. Very cute book and if it fosters a love of reading in her I will have fond memories of it indeed. Ok I was laughing too.

    A boy wants to know why his father always reads him Mother Goose before bedtime, so his father tells him the long, strange story.
  • Kal-El XZavier
    Super cute. I don't know exactly what it is that keeps me from giving it 5 full stars... maybe I'll have to reread to really say. It just didn't completely jive with me or my son. Still cute.
  • Rebecca Frisch
