One Duck Stuck

By Phyllis Root

Illustrated by Jane Chapman

Candlewick Press 1998

A duck is trying to get her leg out of the mud when a load of animals turn up. They want to help, but in the end……..well, youʼll have to read it and see.

This is a 1-10 counting book for very young children, so get spotting those animals! On one page there are 55 to find (that picture took a long time to paint, but it was worth it)!
