Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Like many spirited toddlers we know, Daisy the duck is a youngster who's had her share of exciting escapades. This time, she's in a big jam when she and brother Pip almost lose Mama Duck and Aunt Lily!

Author-illustrator Jane Simmons bring us a cautionary, yet playful, tale starring the adorable duckling. Daisy and Pip love visiting Aunt Lily's house -- with lots of bees and birds to chase, it's great fun. The two quack and quack at mice, fish, and even a balloon. But all their eeeking, splashing, and banging has chased everyone all away. Aunt Lily suggests they all go to the pond, where they can be as loud as they want. They join the rest of the ducks as they quack for pieces of bread. Daisy and Pip have fun playing and munching on moist bread. But a sudden flurry of ducks racing for bread sweeps them along -- and they can't find Mama anywhere. They cry for her, but their little quacks are barely audible over the noise around them. After several tries, Daisy puts her heart into it and takes "the deepest breath ever." "MAMA!" she shouts, loud enough to bring the pond to silence. Mama and Aunt Lily break through the crowd and find the ducklings. Mama Duck is beaming with pride at Daisy's stellar voice. All four ducks head back to Aunt Lily's "for a very, very quiet afternoon."

Daisy, this charming little duck, with her trademark (beaked ) grin and cuddly bright yellow down, will captivate youngsters. Her high-energy spirit and playful romps through life's journey will inspire youngsters. Of course sometimes her adventurous acts get her in a bit of trouble...but hey, that's the fun part! Text is light and perfectly spaced on every page. Kids can easily follow the words and pictures. Illustrations are wonderfully gentle and cheery, and soft edges make the images glow in each spread. Simmons captures the innocence and light-hearted fun of young ducklings with Daisy and Pip. Their sweet features and Daisy's adorable big orange legs are fabulous reminders of all that is precious. (Amy Barkat)

Publishers Weekly
Everything is just ducky when Auntie Lily brings Daisy Duck and her baby brother, Pip, to the feeding pond. "Now we can make as much noise as we like." Yet when a feathered crowd descends, and they attempt to reunite with Mama Duck, the duo's cries are drowned out in Quack, Daisy, QUACK! by Jane Simmons. (Mar.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Simmons's colorfully illustrated book is one in a series of books about Daisy the Duck. This book takes Daisy and her brother Pip on an adventure to their Aunt Lily's home. The first half of the story shows how the loud little ducklings scare everything off that they try to get a close look at. In the middle of the story, the Mama duck and Aunt Lily decide to take the loud ducklings somewhere where their loud ways will not scare anyone off. Unfortunately, in the hustle and bustle, the ducklings get separated from the mother and aunt, to their dismay. Finally in desperation, Daisy lets out a loud, resounding yell, "Mama!" and everything goes quiet. Mama Duck and Aunt Lily find the ducklings, and the story ends with the ducklings sound asleep for a "very, very quiet afternoon." Quack, Daisy, Quack! is an entertaining and colorful book in a series of children's books written by Jane Simmons. In this edition, Daisy the Duck learns a lesson about when it is important to be heard and when it is not. 2002, Little Brown & Company,

School Library Journal
PreS-In this latest adventure, the yellow duckling and her little brother go with their mother to Auntie Lily's where there are many rousing diversions. While the adults visit, the youngsters make a lot of noise chasing the bees, the birds, the mice, the fish, and even a balloon until they've used up all their entertainment. Auntie Lily then takes them to a crowded duck pond where the little ones can be as noisy as they want to be. Daisy and Pip race for the chunks of bread, but get lost in the crowd. Readers will sit on the edge of their seats when Daisy searches for her mother to no avail. Fortunately, she manages to call "Mamma" above the deafening din, and all is well. The bright, bold illustrations are amusing and as engaging as always. Daisy runs about eagerly with skinny neck stretched forward, big feet flapping. Another ducky delight.-Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Impulsive everyduckling Daisy gets into and out of another pickle. As she and little cousin Pip can't play quietly, their mothers take them out onto the crowded duck pond, where noise won't matter. Then pieces of bread start hitting the water, and suddenly Daisy and Pip are cut off from their mamas by excited stampedes of adult ducks. What to do? Daisy takes a deep breath and quacks out "MAMMA" in such stentorian tones that the whole pond is momentarily silenced, and a happy reunion ensues. Whether the focus zooms in for a page-filling close-up, or retreats so that Daisy and her cousin look like they're about to be lost amidst a multicolored rush of bigger quackers, her bright yellow down and oversized, lambently orange beak make her a standout, even for very young eyes. And, as usual, her experience is sure to be in the repertory of nearly every adventuresome toddler and post toddler. (Picture book. 3-5)
