Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS—This simple tale of helpfulness is a charmer. A little yellow duck lives side by side with monkeys, giraffes, gorillas, and elephants. He is wandering through some tall grass when he stops and says, "Uh-oh. I'm lost." A monkey in a tree answers, "I can help." On the following spread, the duck says, "Thank you, monkey!" as he is reunited with his mother. That episode is followed by the monkey needing help, with a giraffe coming to his assistance. The story continues this pattern throughout the book. The text is sweetly illustrated with descriptive pictures. After one reading, most children will pick up on the pattern and be able to read the book by themselves. This endearing story of friendship should have broad appeal for most libraries serving preschoolers.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT
