Millet doesn't want to be a chick, she wants to be a duckling, just like Daisy and Pip! Millet follows Daisy and Pip everywhere and tries to copy everything they do. When they play Peekaboo-in-the Meadow, Millet does too! When they play Bouncy-on-the-Toadstools, Millet does too! When they jump into the river to play Wobbly Twig, Millet does too...but everyone knows that chicks can't swim, don't they? Join Daisy as she races to the rescue and becomes a hero in this adorable and exciting Daisy adventure.

Reviews

Jane Simmons's illustrations are so sumptuous, and the colours so tempting, that one might almost be looking at someone's dream. Children will be enchanted by this adventure. -- The Guardian

About the Author

Jane Simmons

Jane has tried her hand at landscape gardening, futon making, teaching basket weaving and soft toy making but claims the only thing that has held her interest was the idea of writing and illustrating children's books.

Having travelled extensively with her family and living in a whole range of unusual homes, it is no surprise that her current home is hardly conventional. Jane, and her menagerie of rescued pets, live on an ex-fishing boat, aptly named 'Prosperity'. Along with her husband, Neil, she is currently travelling the waterways of France and heading for the sunnier climes of the Mediterranean.

The view from the wheelhouse of 'Prosperity' is the inspiration for Jane's books and while Daisy, gets into all sorts of trouble on the river, Ebb and Flo live on a boat very similar to Jane's and have their adventures by the sea.

Jane and Neil share 'Prosperity' with Gertie and Bertie the lovebirds, dogs called Daisy and Pip and Doris the cat.
