Synopsis

From the New York Times bestselling creators of Click, Clack, Moo, this eBook with audio provides an entertaning introduction to politics.

My fellow Americans:

It is our pleasure, our honor, our duty as citizens to present to you Duck for President. Here is a duck who began in a humble pond. Who worked his way to farmer. To governor. And now, perhaps, to the highest office in the land.

We say, if he walks like a duck and talks like a duck, he will be the next president of the United States of America.

Thank you for your vote.
