Just Ducks

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

Every morning when she wakes up, a little girl hears the ducks quack down on the river that flows through the town. Summer and winter alike, she watches the ducks dabbling and diving - and morning and evening, the ducks are always there.

Former Booktrust Best New Illustrator Salvatore Rubbino's smudgy watercolour illustrations perfectly capture the distinctive personality of the ducks in this beautiful picture book. Davies' lyrical story, narrated in the voice of the little girl, is blended with plenty of bitesize, easy-to-read facts, allowing young readers to learn about everything from what ducks eat to why they quack and where they sleep. This delightful first reference book is certain to charm any child who enjoys feeding the ducks - and proves that ducks really are 'just amazing'.
