Synopsis

Duck and Starfish Make a Splash by Derek Brockway

A delightful seaside tale of a special friendship between two rather unusual friends - Duck (a shelduck) and Starfish. Duck can't find her mum and Starfish decides to help her. Together they visit a number of different sea creatures with no success until Duck and Starfish meet the human who is finally able to help them.

Reviews

What a sweet book! Duck searches for his mother on the beach with Starfishs help. They meet people and sea creatures, but no one seems able to tell them anything until the Weatherman comes to the rescue.The repetitive style will please young readers, and the clear, bright images are attractive and welcoming to the eye. At the back of the book are some small fact files about the creatures Duck meets on the beach, so the book combines a story with the opportunity for broader knowledge. Brockway has also translated the tale into Welsh.And dont worry its a happy ending!Sally OwenIt is possible to use this review for promotional purposes, but the following acknowledgment should be included: A review from www.gwales.com, with the permission of the Welsh Books Council.Gellir defnyddior adolygiad hwn at bwrpas hybu, ond gofynnir i chi gynnwys y gydnabyddiaeth ganlynol: Adolygiad oddi ar www.gwales.com, trwy ganiatd Cyngor Llyfrau Cymru. -- Welsh Books Council
