Captain Duck by Jez AlboroughNew cover reissue in million copy best-selling Duck in the Truck series. 'Ahoy there, sailors!' comes a cry. 'Is this a boating trip I spy?' If there are seas to be explored, make way...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! But although Duck likes to think of himself as an expert sailor he soon runs into problems and the friends have to spend a long, cold night out on the rolling waves.
'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.'
