Harold and the Duck by Bruce Robinson


Harold and the Duck by Bruce Robinson

Finding an egg is one thing. Having it hatch in your own kitchen and turn into a very bossy duck is quite another. When Harold is faced with the prospect of having to share his hearth and home with the Duck it does not look like things are going to work too well. Just as Harold is facing defeat he is saved by an unlikely friend.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

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!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
