Duck in the Fridge is written as a bedtime story. When the son asks Dad why he reads Mother Goose to him every night, Dad begins telling the story of why, beginning with finding a duck in his fridge when he was a boy. You get the sense that this is complete made up nonsense for the boy's benefit, but in the end the little boy falls asleep surrounded by all of the animals in Dad's story.

The story Dad tells is a bit reminiscent of If You Give A Mouse A Cookie. First there is a duck in the fridge who wants crackers, then pizza, then t.v. He tries to get rid of the ducks by bringing in sheep. He keeps bringing in larger animals, but the "party" just gets wilder. Throughout the story, there are numerous speech bubbles as well as the narration. This is distracting and the puns are often not something children would understand such as "Just put it on my bill."

Duck in the Fridge is chaotic. There is a lot going on. I would not say this story would be a calming bedtime story. The illustrations are good and colorful, but extremely crowded.

I think children would enjoy the silliness of this story, but I would recommend saving it for day time if you want your child to actually go to sleep!
