When Duck bounces in to Goat's house, he certainly doesn't expect to have to wait while the baby is being looked after. Duck tries to speed things up but, being Duck, he only manages to make them worse! When will Goat and the baby be ready to go out for a drive with Duck?

Reviews

'With a nod to Dr. Seuss and a wink to John Burningham, Jez Alborough deals an irresistible lesson in rhyme and rhythm as well as storytelling, which is hugely entertaining.'

'Rhyme, illustration, wit and inventiveness combine to produce outstanding quality.'

'Alborough's text is perfect for reading out loud and the mix of close-up and panoramic illustrations give an animated, live-action feel.'

'Colourful, arresting and busting with action.'

'A really great story; the best Duck book so far.'

About the Author

Jez Alborough

Jez Alborough was born in Kingston upon Thames, Surrey in 1959. As a young boy he was always very creative but it was not until a guest bought him a box of crisp white paper, some pencils and a rubber that he expressed his creativity in drawing. As Jez says "It was an act of support and encouragement which I have never forgotten. The identity of this guest remains to this day a mystery. I like to think he was my guardian angel."

Jez is very much in demand for storytelling events for children, as well as speaking about his work to librarians and teachers.

He lives in London with his wife and enjoys playing the guitar and walking along the river.
