A JOYFUL BOOK
By: Patricia Polacco I think this book is a great, 5 , heart-warming book. You¿ll always want to know what will happen next. This is one of my top 10 books I have read in my whole life! You duck lovers will especially love it! This book is about a boy Edward and how he finds a tiny little duckling that dances when it hears a song by John Philip Sousa. With this, Edward names his duck John Philip Duck. If you like books with humor and excitement this is the book for you!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The book, John Philip Duck, is great! I loved it! It is a great story about a boy, named Edward Pembroke, in the Great Depression. He finds a tiny duckling without a mother and keeps it. He works at a hotel and sneaks his duck past the hotel manager. He named his duck John Philip Duck, after John Philip Sousa, a marching band leader. John Philip became very well-known, for a duck. People from around the world came to see the ducks march! This story is based on a true story about the Great Depression, a hotel with marching ducks, and the first official duck master, Edward Pembroke. I recommend this book to anyone!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
