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.
