Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Duck and his barnyard friends are up to something. One by one we meet them, and then hear their familiar sounds.  But that Duck always has the last QUACK! In close-up images, the animals seem to be climbing upon each other. At the very end, we see the hilarious finale. Young readers will delight in making the animal sounds, noticing the funny expressions, and picking out surprising details in the illustrations.

Review:

"'Chicken Chicken Duck/ Goat Sheep Llama/ maa maa baa baa snuffle cluck/ QUACK!' A feisty white duck coordinates an impressive stunt amid lots of barnyard noise in Krilanovich's rhythmic book for very young readers. Paintings of the duck with outstretched wings suggest her cheerleader role directing a flock of chickens, a cat, a dog, and assorted other barnyard animals as they prepare to form a Flying Wallendas — style pyramid. The animals appear in tight closeup against clean white pages; they'd look clinical if not for their obvious excitement, the intensity of their interactions, and the painterly attention Krilanovich (Moon Child) devotes to their feathers, whiskers, black noses, and furry tails. The final arrangement, shown in a vertical spread, is a thing of beauty, the chickens perched symmetrically on the back of a retriever, who in turn stands poised on the back of a goat, and so on all the way down: there's even an egg positioned carefully in the middle. Especially pleasing is the idea that there's no audience for the animals' acrobatics — it's just for the joy of it. Ages 1 — 4. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

About the Author

NADIA KRILANOVICH has worked as an artist, dance instructor, and vocalist. She loves going on adventures, spending time with her family, and hiking with her dog, Cleo. The idea for Chicken, Chicken, Duck! came to her as a chant as she walked along rural country roads, past farms with llamas, cows, and sheep.  "The words sounded like the game 'Duck, Duck, Goose,' minus the goose but with some chickens," she says. This is Nadia's second book for children.
