Summary

Plop! goes the drip that drops from the cup. Duck looks down and Duck looks up. "A leak in the roof, oh! What bad luck. This is a job for Fix-It Duck."

So begins the hilarious new adventure of Duck and his friends Sheep, Goat and Frog.

Duck decides that not only can he fix his own leaking roof, but that Sheep with his broken window would also benefit from his DIY expertise.… Of course, by the time Duck has lent a hand, his hapless friends are left requiring even more repair work than they did in the first place! And what caused Duck’s leaking roof? Could it be that he forgot to turn his bath tap off?!?

Critic reviews

Reviews for Duck in the Truck include:"Rhyme, illustration, wit, and inventiveness combine to produce outstanding quality." (TES Primary)
"With light-hearted tension, wry characterisations and lots of squishy mud, this tale makes for a quacking good read-aloud." (Publishers Weekly)
"Albourough’s text is perfect for reading out loud and the mix of close-up and panoramic illustrations give an animated, live-action feel." (Junior)

Nathan says it's good

My grandson Nathan loved listening to this book as we looked at the pictures on the kindle version. Helps a nana with poorly eyes have reading time. Thank you.
