Find out what happens when clumsy Duck tries not to wake Goat's baby in this boisterous, toddler book with a pop-up surprise! When Duck bounces in to Goat's house, he certainly doesn't expect to have to wait while the baby is being looked after. Duck tries to speed things up but, being Duck, he only manages to make them worse! When will Goat and the baby be ready to go out for a drive with Duck?


'With a nod to Dr. Seuss and a wink to John Burningham, Jez Alborough deals an irresistible lesson in rhyme and rhythm as well as storytelling, which is hugely entertaining.' Child Education Reviews for Duck in the Truck: 'Rhyme, illustration, wit and inventiveness combine to produce outstanding quality.' TES Primary 'Alborough's text is perfect for reading out loud and the mix of close-up and panoramic illustrations give an animated, live-action feel.' Junior 'Colourful, arresting and busting with action.' Child Education Praise for Hit the Ball Duck: 'A really great story; the best Duck book so far.' The Guardian
