What does happen after a child parks a bike and goes inside? In this hilarious picture story, a farmer's duck decides to ride that bike, and each farm animal observes this phenomenon with varying degrees of envy. A cumulative story features a cow, dog, sheep, cat, horse, chicken, goat, two pigs, and a mouse with an ingenious scheme for repetition, and skillful characterization of each animal character through dialogue. A surprising climax perfectly concludes the ride brightly illustrated with Shannon's artwork. Highly Commended, 2003 Charlotte Zolotow Award (Ages 3-7)
