Product Details


Eckstrom’s cartoon-style art enhances the humor at every turn, even including tiny, distant images of the house hurtling through the sky on pages before its crash-landing. Wonderful—sure to beckon repeat reads.
—Kirkus Reviews

The pencil, acrylic, and digital art undercuts some of the action with fuzzy edges and a muted palette, but the real possibility here lies in the performance, with the animals’ compounding upon their frustrated answers to Duck’s misinterpreted command (“You are a duck, and he is a horse, and she is a cow, and he is a pig, and I am a sheep”), culminating in a very adult-sounding lecture about the value of difference—right before the wind picks up. Use this as a playful counterpart to the classic “Chicken Little” for an engaging storytime.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
