The Lovereading4Kids comment
A wonderfully ridiculous story about a happy group of young ducks who rashly decide to take a holiday… Although they are warned by the birds that they meet along the way, the ducks cannot believe that anything can possibly go wrong. But it does! How the ducks outwit their captors and make their way back home and to safety is touching told and beautifully reflected in the elegant and eloquent lithographs that accompany the text.
A Story About Ducks by Jack Townend
A Story about Ducks is the charming tale of a group of ducks who, tired of their quiet little river in the country, decide to take a holiday - on their adventure they eat raspberry buns, ride a roller coaster and narrowly escape being eaten for Christmas dinner!
V&A Publishing have re-issued this and also A Railway ABC, both beautifully illustrated long out of print children’s books written and illustrated by Jack Townend during the Second World War.
