Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Variation and permutations of Beatrix Potter's characters and drawings abound. In this board book, young children are introduced to the world of Jemima Puddle-Duck. The cover features Jemima in her blue bonnet and pink shawl. Also next to her are fuzzy yellow ducklings. The inside pages depict Jemima's farmyard and surrounding area. She wants a quiet place where she can hatch her eggs. She heads off and finds a clearing in the woods where a gentleman is reading a newspaper. Now those who know their animals will realize that this is no gentleman, but a clever fox. He helps her find a shed where she can lay her eggs and come back every day to take care of them. Luckily for Jemima, Kep the farm dog has a clue about this not-so-nice gentleman and, with his friends, chases him away. The fate of the original nine eggs is not disclosed, but in the summer Jemima lays some more in the farmyard and they hatch. She proudly roams around with her four little ducklings. The soft watercolors are timeless and always a pleasure to view. Children will enjoy all the details and delight in a story that has a happy ending.

Read an Excerpt

What a funny sight it is to see a brood of ducklings with a hen! - Listen to the story of Jemima Puddle-duck, who was annoyed because the farmer's wife would not let her hatch her own eggs.

Meet the Author

Jemima is a domestic duck of the Aylesbury breed, whose eggs are routinely confiscated by the farmer's wife because she believes Jemima a poor sitter. Jemima searches for a place away from the farm where she can hatch her eggs without human interference, and naively confides her woes to a suave fox who invites her to nest in a shed at his home. Jemima accepts his invitation, little realizing her danger: the fox plans to kill and roast her.

Purchased this to read to the kids as I remember the story from when I was a child. The format of this makes it a poor choice to read on a nook. Not worth the 0.99 in my opinion.
