What to expect

‘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!

In this hilarious follow-up to the highly-successful Duck in the Truck and Fix-it Duck, things get even more out of hand when Duck 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.

Praise for the much-loved ‘Duck in the Truck’:

With a nod to Dr. Suess and a wink to John Burningham, Jez Alborough deals an irresistible lesson in rhyme and analogy, as well as storytelling, which is hugely entertaining. ‘Child Education’

Alborough's pictures are addictive, combining graphic simplicity with painterly qualities… Duck in the Truck is a picture book where rhyme, illustration, wit and inventiveness combine to produce outstanding quality. ‘TES Primary’

Praise for Fix-it-Duck:

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
