Quick Quack Quentin

Publisher: Hodder Children’s Books

Review

Quentin the duck has a problem. He's lost the U in his quack - a QUCK is just no good at all. At the zoo and on the farm, none of the other animals have any As to spare - the SNAKES don't want to be SNKES and the CAMELS don't want to be CMELS. What will Quentin do? Finally, he finds an animal that can spare an A. Thank goodness!

This beautifully illustrated, colourful picture book explores spelling and letter sounds in the context of great characters and a clever quest story. It's an ideal read for any child learning to read, which is complementary to phonics - either reading together at bedtime or independently.
