Synopsis

It's Quacking Time! by Martin Waddell

This work talks about delightful ducklings, excitable eggs and a celebration of new life - just in time for Easter! When Mummy Duck lays an egg, everyone quacks with excitement. But Duckling has never seen an egg before. Could there really be a baby duck inside? And could it be that he started that way too? As the days pass, Duckling learns a lot about eggs and birth - and just what all the quacking's about! This work reunites the highly successful creators of The Pig in the Pond (highly commended for the Kate Greenaway Medal).

Reviews

It's Quacking Time! is a familiar story made gloriously exuberant in both words and pictures. The Guardian
