Make Way for Ducklingsby Robert Mccloskey
Synopses & Reviews
Mrs. Mallard was sure that the pond in the Boston Public Gardens would be a perfect place for her and her eight ducklings to live. The problem was how to get them there through the busy streets of Boston. But with a little help from the Boston police, Mrs. Mallard and Jack, Kack, Lack, Nack, Ouack, Pack, and Quack arive safely at their new home.
This brilliantly illustrated, amusingly observed tale of Mallards on the move has won the hearts of generations of readers. Awarded the
Caldecott Medal for the most distinguished American picture book for children in 1941, it has since become a favorite of millions.
Starting and ending with adorable ducklings, this 60-year old story is still as charming today as it was when Viking first published it in 1941. A true classic, Make Way for Ducklings is sure to win yet another generation of fans!
Beloved by many generations of children, the Caldecott-winning story of Mrs. Mallard's search for a new home for her ducklings was chosen by American booksellers as one of the first inductees into the Picture Book Hall of Fame. The duckling family is immortalized in bronze statues in Boston's Public Garden, and duplicate statues can also be seen in a park in Moscow.
