DUCK ON A BIKE SUMMARY

One day, Duck had an idea: he wanted to ride a bike! Duck got on a bike and rode around the farm, passing animals as he went. Each animal squeaked or neighed, but the story shows what they are really thinking. Eventually, a group of bike riders leave their bikes to go inside, and all of the barnyard animals hop on! No one knows about their secret adventure, but the animals thank Duck for the idea and the fun!
