Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a giant rainstorm crashes over a cargo ship, an entire crate of plastic bath toys washes into the sea. For many days, one yellow duck bobs on a vast ocean of dangerous sharks and breathtaking sunsets. Based on an actual event that occurred in 1992. Full color.

Synopsis:

When a violent ocean storm causes a crate holding assorted plastic tub toys — including one resilient little duck — to wash overboard, the course of Ducky's life alters drastically. This engaging story based on a real event includes an author's note.

About the Author

EVE BUNTING has writtenandnbsp;over two hundredandnbsp;books for children, including the Caldecott Medal-winning Smoky Night, illustrated by David Diaz, The Wall, Fly Away Home, and Train to Somewhere. She lives in Southern California.

David Wisniewski (wiz-NESS-key) was born in Middlesex, England, in 1953. After training at Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Clown College, he spent three years as a clown, designing and constructing his own props, costumes, and gags. He was subsequently hired by his future wife, Donna, as a performer with a traveling puppet theatre. Married six months later, the Wisniewskis started their own troupe, Clarion Shadow Theatre, specializing in shadow puppetry. In the course of creating the plays, puppets, and projected scenery, Mr. Wisniewski evolved the storytelling techniques and art skills that eventually led to his picture books with their unique cut-paper illustrations. His retelling of GOLEM was awarded the 1997 Caldecott Medal. David Wisniewski died in 2002 in the Maryland home he shared with his wife and two children.
