Summary

"Ahoy there, sailors!" comes a cry. "Is this a boating trip I spy?" If there are seas to be explored, make way.… Captain Duck’s on board!

In this hilarious follow-up to the highly-successful Duck in the Truck and Fix-it Duck, things get even more out of hand when Duck takes the long-suffering Frog and Sheep on a trip out to sea in Goat’s boat! But although Duck likes to think of himself as an expert sailor he soon runs into problems and the friends have to spend a long, cold night out on the rolling waves.

Critic reviews

Praise for the much-loved Duck in the Truck: "With a nod to Dr. Suess and a wink to John Burningham, Jez Alborough deals an irresistible lesson in rhyme and analogy, as well as storytelling, which is hugely entertaining." ( Child Education)
"Alborough's pictures are addictive, combining graphic simplicity with painterly qualities.… Duck in the Truck is a picture book where rhyme, illustration, wit, and inventiveness combine to produce outstanding quality." ( TES Primary)
Praise for Fix-it-Duck: "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)
