CAPTAIN DUCK'S ON BOARD!As usual with Duck, things get terribly out of hand when he takes the long-suffering Frog and Sheep on a trip out to sea in Goat's boat!

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.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

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.
