Product Details


“A rib-tickling variant on a tale not often enough retold.”—Kirkus Reviews
“an entertaining story of justice and jelly beans.”—Publishers Weekly
“This is a lighter-than-air confection, but the playful message will appeal to children, who will enjoy the story’s simple sense of fairness and broad good humor.”—School Library Journal
“Listening children will anticipate the role of each of Duck’s pals and will enjoy seeing the king’s nasty acts rightfully rewarded . . . This is anything but a heavy-handed moral treatment, though—Gerstein’s pen-and-ink, acrylic, and colored-pencil illustrations employ a cheerful palette, with scribbly lines and dialogue bubbles.”—The Horn Book
” The strength of this retelling lies in its comfortable rhymes and repeated phrases that make story details easy to remember and anticipate. Additionally, the choice of present tense for most of the tale places listeners within the story and makes them part of the action. Gerstein’s sunny, cartoon-style illustrations add to this version’s upbeat mood, and the use of speech bubbles will help young listeners to distinguish between narration and dialogue. A good choice for reading aloud or encouraging creative dramatics.”—Booklist
