More About the Author

I've been a children's author for some 30 years and had over 140 books published. My writing ranges from picture books for the very young to fiction for pre-teens.

KNOCK KNOCK, WHO'S THERE? is 30 years old this October and still going strong, so I think I can say that it's a classic. As is SHHH! - published in 1991 - which children absolutely adore (especially the giant's eye). It's become a cult book in France and Belgium. It's also just recently sold into China, along with KEEP OUT! and the soon to be published HELP!, all of them illustrated by the very talented Peter Utton.

I was enormously proud to win the Nestle Smarties Gold Award for SPILLED WATER, my novel about a Chinese girl sold into domestic slavery, and I'm proud too of my subsequent books about children of the world who lead difficult lives - BROKEN GLASS, TORN PAGES and BITTER CHOCOLATE.

I've normally got a book or two on the go, and I guess I always will. Back to work now. :)

I found a copy of this by chance when my son was about 2 and both my kids loved it. They both join in whenever I read it "Oh, you mucky duck".

too cute! 6 Jan. 2009

my daughter is 2 and a half right now and we rented this book from the library... we had to renew it because she loved it so much! we read it several times a day while we had it and my husband had to take it back during her nap time so that she wouldn't see. when she woke up she was so sad that "mucky duck had to go back to her home." we haven't had it in weeks and she STILL talks about it. that's why i'm here looking to buy it. great kid's book and very short so it's ok if you read "just one more book."
My Daughter's Favorite Book! 18 Sept. 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This has been my daughter's favorite book since she was 2 and a half. We read it several times a day. The book is about a little boy who owns a duck, and what they get up to each day. It tells of different things that they like to do that also leeds to them getting into a mess. There is a page on cooking, painting, playing ball and digging in the garden. All of these invole Mucky Duck getting Dirty and at the end she has to have a bath. Great if your child is not thrilled with bathtime!

Love the book. We borrowed it from the local library and had to purchase it ourselves. My kids love the part-"Oh you Mucky Duck!" My little 8 month old got a kick out of it and my 3 yr. old. GREAT book!
