Sarah and Duck are looking for something interesting to do and decide to go to the zoo. Duck really wants to meet the penguins – will they find them and have an exciting day? Sarah decides she wants to be a zookeeper and Duck dons his penguin costume for the special visit. However, by the end of their visit, Duck has decided he would much rather be a duck than a penguin... Based on the popular television show, this is a delightful story set in a familiar setting which young children will enjoy. Sarah and Duck are lovely characters and this story is based on an episode of the show.

This is a lovely, bright picture book, based on the popular television show. A nice quality, well presented story, which will appeal to children who enjoy the programme.
