Proud as punch

This evening Dash’s choice for bedtime reading was Farmer Duck. He had borrowed it from the school library. It’s about a duck who lives with a lazy farmer. The duck does all the work while the farmer lays in bed and calls out ‘How’s the work?’ all day. One day the other animals, incensed at the duck’s predicament, stage a coup, of sorts. The farmer ends up running off, never to return. The animals end up working the farm themselves, free from the farmer. (You can see where this is going can’t you?)

When we finished the book, Dash looked at the picture of all the animals working and said

“Ha! An animal farm!”

Exacty my son, exactly.

(Yes it’s coincidental but it tickled me).
