Definitely No Ducks!

By Meg McKinlay
Illustrated by Leila Rudge

A rollicking story that is sure to send feathers flying!

Max, the class duck, is in trouble. The Antarctica display has been totally destroyed. Ripped. Torn. Chewed. And everyone knows Max is to blame. Or is he? Abby and Noah are determined to uncover the truth. If they can’t, they will have to say goodbye to Max forever.

  • “A great book for newly independent readers.” – Magpies
