The Birthday Duck: Unabridged edition
The classic story of finding fun on the farm from the nation’s favourite storyteller, Michael Morpurgo.
From Sir Michael Morpurgo comes a classic story of one small boy, and one very lucky duck…
Sam is a city boy through and through – and isn’t looking forward to his school trip to Nethercott Farm at all.
But busy days of farm work, animals and learning all about nature weave their magic – and when Sam finds a duck about to be dinner, he is determined to save him. But how?
This warm and magical story is set on the real-life Nethercott Farm – a member of Farms for City Children – the charity that offers urban children from all over the country the chance to live and work together on a real farm and experience the magic of the English countryside.
