Synopses & Reviews
Where is that duck going in such a hurry? Mary Murphy brings her surefire baby appeal to this bright concept book.
This little duckie needs to be quick-quack-quick — leaping out of the mud, scooting under the hedge, running around the flowers, and skipping over the stones. Now he can splash into the river, where his mom and siblings are waiting and ready to go!
"A wide-eyed and enthusiastic yellow duck takes center stage in this unstuffy introduction to prepositions. 'Quick, Duck! Out of the mud! Quick, Duck! Under the hedge!' writes Murphy, as her tiny hero, outlined in thick black ink and painted in bright watercolor, makes its way past flowers, through reeds, and over stones to meet its family for a swim. A companion book, Slow Snail, which is available simultaneously, tackles the same concept (at a slower pace). Ages 1 3." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
