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
