`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
