Brightly illustrated with his unique collage-style art and featuring a surprise squeaky little rubber duck on the final page!

Reviews

'Carle's repetitively structured story works perfectly and shows that he has lost none of his touch in the 30 years since 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'

.

'It's the perfect-to-read-aloud text and gentle humour, combined with an emotionally satisfying - if unlikely - ending, and those glorious illustrations that will make it a bedtime favourite.'

'Children's author and illustrator, Carle explores numbers, geography, animals and more in an extraordinary interactive picture book in which rubber ducks are ship-wrecked and swept in all directions to amazing adventures.'

'Made of Carle's characteristic bold collage, cut from textured scraps of scraped and scrubbed paint, this bright and delightful story typically crams in lots of learn...It shows seas of different colours, suggesting different weather, has a touching ending and, as a bonus, a button at the end that makes a gentle, rubber-duck squeak.'

'As usual, his inimitable illustrations have the unfathomable quality of an innocent childlike collage combined with a glorious work of art.'
