Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With a sprinkling of beguiling Briticisms and pictures that look like stills from vintage animation, British author/artist Ward succeeds in dusting off most of the cobwebs from a familiar story. Baby Duck is ready for his first foray into the water, and he's convinced the experience is going to be "brilliant." But when he reaches the pond, it seems deep and enormous, a light rain "patter[s]" down and, all together, "It's splashy and horrible! I hate it!" When the wind sweeps his beloved teddy bear out of his arms and into the drink, however, Baby Duck plunges in to save him. "Well done!" declares Mrs. Duck, every bit an English mum. Ward lets readers know that Baby Duck's anxieties are ungrounded-filled with cavorting fish, duck and frogs, the pond beckons like an action-packed community swimming pool. But Ward also understands how little steps can feel huge for a child, so he makes the most out of Teddy's rescue: the bear seems caught in a mini whirlpool, the sky turns menacingly grey, and Baby Duck makes a leap worthy of the Olympic diving team. Ages 3-8. (Oct.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Baby Duck faces the world with a cheery smile, one foot in front of the other, especially on the day of his very first swim. His beloved teddy tucked under his arm, he goes to the pond with his mother and two sisters. Once there, though, the fledgling is frozen with fear. The water's too cold, the pond is too big, rain and wind have come up. Everyone, from the fish to the frog, urges him on, to no avail. And just when it seems that things couldn't get worse, teddy somehow goes flying into the water. Overcome by his toy's plight, Baby Duck jumps in without hesitation and-as readers knew he would-realizes that the water is fine after all. This charming story reaches its dramatic climax slowly but is quickly resolved, which will be to the delight of young readers and listeners. Although comparisons to that other Baby Duck (Amy Hest's) are inevitable and the resemblance is striking, this fellow has enough personality to stand on his own two webbed feet. A great choice for sharing one-on-one or for storytime.-Jane Marino, Bronxville Public Library, NY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
