“This is the duck driving home in a truck. This is the track which is taking him back. This is the rock stuck by the truck and this is the muck where the truck becomes stuck.” Thus is the scene set for a comic escapade involving a sheep in a jeep and a goat in a motorboat, trying all a manner of tricks to free the cantankerous duck. Alborough’s text is perfect for reading out loud, and the mix of close-up and panoramic illustrations give an animated, live action feel. Junior Magazine Nov ‘99

It was the first book of any length that absorbed my one year old, while at the same time the humour appeals to my four year old.
The story is complete - it has a beginning, a middle and an end. The pictures have lots in them, both at first sight and after the endless repetition that goes with reading to very young children! And, almost best of all for the adult reader, all is not sweetness and light with the characters' behaviour. There is something to talk about with your older listeners.
This book is good fun while also teaching morals - it's just a shame that the duck left all of his friends stuck in the muck at the end! How ungrateful!!
