About the Author
Phyllis Root says she wanted One Duck Stuck "to be a north woods wetlands counting book, accurate to the marshes of Minnesota. All the animals are actually found here. I love to go canoeing and camping, and this book is a composite of my own experiences." Phyllis Root has written many books for children, including WHAT BABY WANTS, ALL FOR THE NEWBORN BABY, and KISS THE COW!
Jane Chapman has a pet tortoise named Muggs, who at the age of seventy is a family heirloom, and one day she would like to have a duck as well. She is the illustrator of several books for children, including THE EMPEROR'S EGG by Martin Jenkins and THE STORY OF CHRISTMAS by Vivian French.

My (almost) four year old son and I have checked this book out of the library countless times and now I have finally purchased a copy to own. The illustrations are fabulous and the text is too! Just a word of warning-- if you come across the board book, it is abridged and that was highly upsetting to my son.
One Duck Stuck is a wonderful rhyming poem that teaches children to count while also entertaining them with colorful illustrations. This book is a joy to read to children, and the style lends itself to laughter and joy for all ages. A must for any true book lovers library!
