The Duck Song

Apparently if you haven't heard of The Duck Song, you must have been living under a rock!  With over 150 million hits on YouTube, it is fair to say that this song/story has gone viral.

Colourful, bold illustrations by Forrest Whaley accompanies the oft downloaded words of the Duck Song. Based on the video, the book also comes complete with a CD.

Duck is after some grapes. With his persistent call of, 'Hey! Got any grapes?'  he repeatedly asks at the unlikeliest of places, a lemonade stand. Undeterred, he returns each day asking for grapes. This quirky story will have parents and children singing along... wishing for those grapes!
