Duckie's Splash by Frances Barry

Brilliant hues, simple shapes, and a splashy pop-out surprise draw the youngest of readers to this clever concept book about actions and their opposites.

No matter what Duckie does, it seems her friends do the opposite! When Duckie looks up, Kingfisher looks down. When Duckie hops forward, Frog hops backward. And of course, when Duckie runs in front, Lizard runs behind. Little ones reading this bright, beguiling board book will happily predict the pattern that follows but will be caught by surprise by a final pop-out — as Duckie jumps into a pond and a number of colorful fish really do jump out.

About the Author

FRANCES BARRY introduced the winsome Duckie in her eye-popping concept-book debut, DUCKIE'S RAINBOW, and continued her character's adventures in the novelty book DUCKIE'S DUCKLINGS. She says, "The starting point for Duckie's Spalsh was the pop-up ending; then I worked backwards...In the small board book format, I was able to zoom in on Duckie's world. I enjoyed being able to include so many new animal characters. It's the first time I remember ever having drawn or made an otter or a kingfisher." Frances Barry has worked as a designer of greeting cards and stationary and has painted several public and private murals. She lives in London.
