Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carolyn Dennette Michaels
This English artist has created light, fresh, picture book whose pages hold the English author's retelling of the eternal verities of an individual's efforts to achieve group acceptance. As a caregiver whose reaction to the book is "must have," others should find only pleasure in transmitting Duffle Duck's antics to his or her chosen audience of listeners and lookers.
