About this book

First published in the 1940s, this beautifully illustrated children's books was written and illustrated by Jack Townend during the Second World War. Long out of print, it is now reproduced here for the first time.

A Story About Ducks is the charming tale of a group of ducks who, tired of their quiet little river in the country, decide to take a holiday – on their adventure they eat raspberry buns, ride a roller coaster and narrowly escape being eaten for Christmas dinner!
