About the book: Bedtime has never been so silly! Every night it’s the same old story. A boy wants to stay up late, but his parents won’t let him. But sometimes in the morning, he notices things look a little off–like when he sees a disco ball in the kitchen…with his toy duck on it. So one night he decides to stay up. Silliness builds with each page of this high-energy, pun-filled companion to Duck in the Fridge until the moment when sleep eventually takes hold and morning arrives once more.

Our thoughts: We recently received a copy of Jeff Mack’s Duck on a Disco Ball to review here on Five Dollar Shake, as part of an ongoing book tour. Our four year old granddaughter was happy to help me with this review.
By her request, I read the book to Lulu three times within one afternoon. The book is filled with large, colorful images that help tell a fun and very relatable story for kids and parents alike. It has quickly became one of her favorite books. We have done a lot of laughing over this book. Being four, I wanted to see how Lulu felt the book related to her life, so I asked her the following questions.
What did you think of the story Duck on a Disco Ball?
I thought it was funny. I like it, yep. The parents are silly.
What was your favorite part?
When the parents fly out the window. When they dance.
(incert about 20 minutes of Lulu dancing around the living room like a crazy kid)
Would you like to stay awake for a full night?
Yes. I would play like a party with music and dancing. Eat candy and wear all of my cloths.
What do you think happens at night after you go to bed?
I don’t know. Maybe nothing. Maybe everything. They eat all the food.
