DUCK!

By Meg McKinlay

A delightfully duckish picture book of farmyard disaster.

Duck can see that something is falling from the sky. He tries to warn the other farmyard animals by telling them to "Duck!" but they won’t listen … A hilarious picture book of farmyard disaster by award-winning author Meg McKinlay and emerging illustrator Nathaniel Eckstrom.

  • This is an absolutely hilarious picture book from Meg McKinlay, the award-winning author of No Bears and Once Upon a Small Rhinoceros (both illustrated by Leila Rudge).
  • Featuring funny yet charming illustrations by upcoming illustrator Nathaniel Eckstrom.
  • A great book that begs reading aloud and active participation.
