Watch out! Here comes Duck in a brand new edition of the first book in the million copy bestselling series! This is the tale of a duck in a truck - a truck that was stuck in some yucky brown muck. A sheep in a jeep and a frog in a bush saw the truck stuck and gave it a push. But the truck stayed stuck! What now, can you guess? Could a goat in a boat get them out of this mess?


'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
