About this book

From spring right through to winter...there they are! Down on the river! Quack quuuack, Quack-quaack-quack...What do you know about ducks? I bet you know that they quack...a lot! Well, discover much more in this book that's all about, well, just ducks! Learn all about which is a boy duck and which is a girl, why some quack louder and others more softly. Find out what they eat when it is cold outside and where they perch their bottoms to sleep!

Part of the Nature Storybooks series, this new title about ducks is a perfect first reference book for little children! Salvatore Rubbino places his ducks against a sumptuous watercolour setting and his illustrations perfectly capture their wit, playfulness and movement. As always, Nicola Davies blends together non-fiction facts and a lyrical narrative to create a fantastic picture-book story.
