It's chaos on the pond as Goose heads off on holiday and leaves Duck in charge. Before long all those apart from Duck who also live on the pond begin to leave. Will Duck realise the error of his bossy ways before its too late? A really lovely colourful picture book with a bit of a moral undertone.


Duck Says Don't! by Alison Ritchie

Goose has gone on holiday and left Duck in charge of her pond. But Duck is a bit TOO enthusiastic ... No Splashing! No Fishing! No Racing! he quacks. Soon Duck has put up signs EVERYWHERE! Diving is forbidden! (Because Duck says so) No Swimming! (By order of Duck in charge of pond!) But then all his friends start leaving! Will bossy Duck learn his lesson before it's too late?

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
