Publisher Comments:

An engaging and charming true rescue story illustrated by a Christopher Award winner!

Early one morning, Mama Duck takes her babies for a walk. They follow safely behind her as they leave their pond, waddle through the park, and stop in the little sunlit town's parking lot for yummy breakfast.

But one by one, Mama's little ducklings get separated when they disappear into the slats of the town's storm drain. How three firemen and a pickup truck rush to their rescue makes for a vivid and exciting drama that children will return to over and over again.

Award-winning artist Nancy Carpenter and veteran author Eva Moore have created a delightful new classic with an inspiring environmental message.

Review:

"Carpenter's warm, retro spreads salute McCloskey in what might turn out to be this generation's duckling rescue story. Seeing public officials put civic machinery to work to save baby animals is every bit as charming today as it was 70 years ago. 'Help!' cries a woman who sees five pint-size ducklings follow their mother across a storm drain and disappear through the grate one by one. 'Call the fire department!' Carpenter (Heroes of the Surf) supplies a ducklings'-eye view of their wait in the darkness as curious faces stare down at them. The firefighters can't budge the drain cover, but a truck driver named Perry drags it off so they can free 'Pippin, Bippin, Tippin, Dippin... and last of all, Little Joe,' who await their mother in a handy bucket of water. The rescue depicted actually took place on Long Island in 2000; Moore enlivens the account with engaging narrative devices, repeating the duckling's rhyming names and punctuating the story with 'Oh, dear! That could have been the end of the story. But it wasn't.' It's worthy of its predecessor, and a welcome sequel of sorts. Ages 5 — 7." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
