Synopsis

Zachary Quack Minimonster by Lynley Dodd

Zachary Quack is back! The irrepressible little duckling is starring in his own story and is more pittery-pattery, skittery-scattery than ever. He's busy hustling and rustling all sorts of creatures on the riverbank when he comes across a dragonfly. He's determined to catch the dragonfly but it's far too quick, leading Zachary Quack on a flapping chase. He gets tangled in some wool and an old shoe, stuck in some glue and traipses through a sandpit and all the while not being able to catch the dragonfly. At the end of the chase it's not a little yellow fluffy duck we see but...Zachary Quack Minimonster!

Reviews

Dodd's pictures are good, but the rhyming verse is even better - delightful to read aloud and soon learned by heart Independent on Sunday
