Find out if Duck dares in this hilarious, rhythmic read!
Joyce Dunbar is a widely respected author of more than fifty books for children. Her MOUSE AND MOLE series has been very popularly adapted for television and her lyrical re-telling of the Nativity story, THIS IS THE STAR, received widespread critical acclaim. She has also collaborated with artist Debi Gliori for several picture books for the Doubleday/Picture Corgi list, including TELL ME SOMETHING HAPPY BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP. Jane Massey studied Graphic Design at Kingston University and went on to work for several agencies in London and Hong Kong. Since moving into illustration she has worked on numerous children's books as well as commissions for advertising, packaging and greetings cards. She lives in Brighton with her partner and young son.
The soft yet energetic illustrations are a perfect foil to the text
and make this an altogether charming experience. Jane Massey knows
how to get the best from watercolour and textures, while Joyce
Dunbar knows how to be original. What better way to introduce
little ones to a love of language and image? * Books for Keeps
An engaging, alliterative, tongue twisting read-aloud...the illustrations are fun, and certainly hold the attention of young readers. * The School Librarian *
