Ducks to water by Brett Avison
Ill. by Janine Dawson. Five Mile Press, 2015. ISBN 9781760066062
(Age: All) Highly recommended. Bryn loves visiting Mum & Ted's farm, but this time there's a problem! The pond is dry, the big pipe is blocked with mud . . . how to unblock it and fill up the waterhole?
Meanwhile, Oscar the dog, is surprised when a nest of duck eggs begins to hatch. As Ken comes to the rescue with his mighty crane, jiggling the pipe to empty out the stuck mud, Oscar becomes 'Mum' to the ducklings.
When the pond fills . . . it's time for a SWIM for people AND ducks. Then Bryn discovers that the clever ducks have learnt a new game!
Bouncing along in a romping rhyme, this engaging story with comical illustrations is thoroughly entertaining.
A delightful story, amusingly illustrated, I highly recommend it for all children.
