The Lovereading4Kids comment

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.

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?
