Splish, Splash, Ducky!

Author(s): Lucy Cousins Lucy

Hardback Picture Books

Quack, quack, quack! Ducky Duckling loves playing outside in the rain. He hops with frog, squirms with wriggly worm and splashes with the fishes. But when the rain stops, Ducky feels sad. Can Daddy help cheer him up?


With bright, bold illustrations and a rhythmic text from multi-award-winning Lucy Cousins, this book shows younger readers the joys of a rainy day. This delightful story also highlights the special bond between father and child. A bouncy read-aloud book to be enjoyed; beautifully illustrated with bold, bright colours and packed with all sorts of outdoors fun!

A hug for bug
and a hug for slug.
Quack, quack, quack!

This is an absolutely delightful new picture book from the creator of Maisy Mouse. When Ducky is happy, Ducky says "Quack, quack, quack!" - and there are plenty of things to be happy about. First of all, it's raining, which is a great time to play with friends. On each big, bright and boldly coloured double-page spread, Ducky does a different splashy activity with another friend. Ducky has many friends, which is not surprising because Ducky is clearly such fun to be around. I also admire the way Ducky does the activities that each different creature especially likes (Ducky's friends are all different animals around the pond). When the rain stops, Ducky's infectious smile falters, but not for long, because Dad is there to cheer Ducky up.

With gentle rhymes and a fun refrain that toddlers will love joining in on, Splish, Splash, Ducky! is a perfect read-aloud for the very young - and it will definitely put a smile on your face while you're at it.
