The Lovereading4Kids comment
Tufty the little duck grows up in the grounds of Buckingham Palace (his parents are very fond of the Royal Duck and Duckess (sic) who give the ducks their breakfast!). When winter comes, the duck family flies south but little Tufty gets lost as they navigate the city and is found by a homeless man who looks after him in in his den in a chestnut tree until it’s spring again. Tufty goes home but, when he falls in love, takes his new partner back to live with his old friend in the woods. Michael Foreman’s delicate pencil and watercolour illustrations make the grounds of Buckingham Palace, the glass towers of the city and the rich colours of the chestnut woods glow as brightly as Tufty’s feathers, and he fills this little story with drama and heart. ~ Andrea Reece
