Reviews

`With a nod to Dr. Seuss and a wink to John Burningham, Jez Alborough deals an irresistible lesson in rhyme and rhythm as well as storytelling, which is hugely entertaining.
Child EducationReviews for Duck in the Truck:

`Rhyme, illustration, wit and inventiveness combine to produce outstanding quality.
TES Primary

`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

`Colourful, arresting and busting with action.
Child EducationPraise for Hit the Ball Duck:

`A really great story; the best Duck book so far.
The Guardian
