New cover reissue in million copy best-selling Duck in the Truck series. 'Ahoy there, sailors!' comes a cry. 'Is this a boating trip I spy?' If there are seas to be explored, make way! CAPTAIN DUCK'S ON BOARD! As usual with Duck, things get terribly out of hand when he takes the long-suffering Frog and Sheep on a trip out to sea in Goat's boat! But although Duck likes to think of himself as an expert sailor he soon runs into problems and the friends have to spend a long, cold night out on the rolling waves.


'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
