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.
