The book is all about baby duck who tries overcome his fears, as you start to read you can feel the childrens tension building with the story as differnt animals Splash into the pond, it's only when his teddy takes a dive that baby duck gets the courage he's been looking for. The story kept the twins on the edge of their seat and interested, which as anyone with 4 year olds knows is not an easy task.
I'd recommend this book to anyone young or old as it's a lovely story with wonderful pictures.

On the whole, a fairly common story that has been done in a number of ways. Ward, however, adds drama and excitement to the story when Baby Duck is forced to confront his problem in a very head-on way. The highlight of the story, however, is not so much the story itself as the illustrations. The Baby Duck character and his teddy bear, Teddy, are drawn in a very appealing way and Ward adds plenty of depth and excitement to the story through his action-packed illustrations. Overall, the illustrations work to propel the story from somewhat average children's book fare to something a bit more memorable.
This review is the fifth in the series "Agent0042 Goes Ducky," in which I review books featuring cute duck or duckling characters. The fourth was Duckling's First Spring.
