Just Ducks!

By Nicola Davies
Illustrated by Salvatore Rubbino

From spring right through to winter ... there they are! Down on the river! Quack quuuack, Quack-quaack-quack...

What do you know about ducks? I bet you know that they quack ... a lot! Well, discover much more in this book that's all about, well, just ducks! Learn all about which is a boy duck and which is a girl, why some quack louder and others more softly. Find out what they eat when it is cold outside and where they perch their bottoms to sleep!

  • Part of the Nature Storybooks series, this new title about ducks is a perfect first reference book for little children!
  • Salvatore Rubbino places his ducks against a sumptuous watercolour setting and his illustrations perfectly capture their wit, playfulness and movement.
  • As always, Nicola Davies blends together non-fiction facts and a lyrical narrative to create a fantastic picture-book story.
