Duck on a Tractor by David Shannon; illustrated by David Shannon. 2016.

Brief summary: Duck’s curiosity gets him into another adventure as he climbs on top of a red tractor. He invites all the farm animals to climb aboard as they head into downtown past the diner where some of the customers look out wondering if they are seeing things. Farmer O’Dell notices that the tractor looks like his own and decides to go after it along with the other diner customers. The tractor turns the corner and runs out of gas causing all of the creatures to quickly run away realizing they may get in trouble with the farmer. When the crowd turns the corner, they see an empty red tractor sitting in the middle of the street. After believing they all must be seeing things, they go back to the diner to continue eating.

Comments: Done in the same whimsical style as Duck on a Bike(2002). Hilarious and exaggerated facial expressions and body language will have students giggling throughout the book.
