Booklist - 12/15/2018 A young boy suspects he's missing out on fun every night after his parents make him go to bed. Although all seems calm every morning, there are some incongruities: how did his stuffed duck wind up on the ceiling disco ball? He stays awake and sneaks downstairs one night, only to walk into . . . a wild bash! With party animals! Cows and monkeys gobble down pizza and donuts, and his parents dance and jump on the furniture and then fly off into the night sky, only to fall back down into bed, fast asleep. In the morning, the house is so clean the boy thinks it must have been a dream, but then he spots his duck behind the couch—with an electric guitar. The boy narrates; the duck makes wise-quacks, and the bright, colorful illustrations spill across the pages, especially when showing frenzied shenanigans, which nicely contrast the neat panels that frame the scene when order prevails. This goofy bedtime drama is a worthy sequel to Duck in the Fridge (2014). - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
