DUCK! by Meg McKinlay, Illustrated by Nathaniel Eckstrom, Candlewick Press


A delightfully duckish tale of farmyard disaster.

It’s a quiet day on the farm until Duck arrives. When he starts calling out “DUCK!”, the other animals think he’s just being rude. “You can’t just run around yelling out your name!” they grumble.

But what if that’s not what Duck means at all? Perhaps ignoring him could have unexpected consequences …

This hilarious picture book begs reading aloud and active participation.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

I absolutely love this book! The MC is such an adorable farmyard character. In this book sometimes the littlest one has something big to say, so pay attention! The humor and fun is escalated by the double meaning of some words and applied to animals who refuse to listen.

Like many adults who are persistent in saying what they believe something should be and are often wrong, so are the larger animals of the farm.  So cute and brightly illustrated with fun characters to bring the story to life. I turned the pages wanting to know how it ended and can imagine the youngest of readers doing the same. Adorable and fun! Illustrated perfectly to deliver the final ‘punch.’

There is a matching book jacket to protect the hardcover illustrations.

Well done!
