Duck for President

Duck for President

by Doreen Cronin Illustrated by Betsy Lewin

When Duck gets tired of working for Farmer Brown, his political ambition eventually leads to his being elected President.

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.

Some say, if he walks like a duck and talks like a duck, he is a duck.

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.
