Product Details


“The watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations capture both the details of the sunny day and the dark drains as the chase moves from quiet town to busy city streets, ramping up the tension. It all ends with a very clever rescue scene and a nice lesson in generosity and cooperation to boot.”—Booklist

“It would be easy to believe that the energetic pen-and-watercolor illustrations were sketched from life as McCully followed ducks around her neighborhood. . . . Very few readers will remain unmoved as that mother duck runs from grating to grating, trying to catch a glimpse of her children; everyone loves a duck.”—Kirkus Reviews

“The color and hue of the pictures feel vintage, reminiscent of earlier picture book styles. The descriptive images paired with ideal text for early readers and the satisfying ending make this book a suitable addition to most collections.”—School Library Journal

“The minimal text of this beginning reader helpfully uses repetition of words and phrases, very short sentences (‘Little ducks go. They go down.’), and a large, clear sans serif font to support novice readers . . . the personable, detailed line and watercolor illustrations add interest to the restricted text.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
