Synopsis

The Duck with No Luck by Jonathan Long

When Dizzy the duck oversleeps and misses the flight South, he knows that he must, somehow, catch his friends up. Unfortunately, Dizzy doesn't have a good sense of direction. Can anyone help him on his way? Join him as he encounters a mischievous pigeon, a well-meaning parrot, and a hungry vulture ...not to mention swampy jungles and a chase into space! This amusing, quirky tale is perfectly paired with Korky Paul's exuberant illustrations.

Reviews

Korky Paul's contribution to children's books is very exciting. His work is crammed with humour and details, it's lively, full of movement and forces the reader to turn the page. Books For Keeps

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

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.
