Reviews

This is a great monster book for toddler storytimes. A little duck chases a dragonfly and makes a mess of himself, looking more and more like a monster the further he goes until he lands in the pond and everything gets cleaned off. Super cute.

The gorgeous little Zachary Quack gets himself into a right mess chasing a dragonfly. Too cute.

My two year old is rarely genuinely interested in his bedtime story, normally it's just a time for him to jump on mummy and daddy's bed, but with this one he will sit beside me, point at the pictures and is now joining it with the repeating phrases "flick, flick, flick" and "quick, quick, quick".
