Hooray for Ducks!!

Announcing the long-awaited next Ducks book from my oh-so-talented friend and writing partner, Lynne Berry. Duck Dunks is a rollicking story of a group of mischievous ducklings at the beach. Rhyme and rhythm are perfect, and the illustrations by Hiroe Nakata are darling.

This is a must for all toddler summer birthday presents! Buy it. Love it. Read it. And it’s so nice you won’t even mind reading it six million times.

  1. I struggled to put Salmon Fishing in the Yemen down, finishing it in 3 days. Torday’s got a great writing style and structure. I’ll have to pick up his second effort sometime soon.


  2. I didn’t know he had another book out. I totally loved Salmon Fishing. One of the best I’ve read in a long time. It kind of reminded me of Scoop, by Evelyn Waugh.
