9780006647171: Duck in the Truck

Here comes Duck in his truck, the wonderful new character soon to be the focus of a whole new series. But watch out for that rock Duck … too late Duck’s truck is stuck in the muck!

The truck is well and truly stuck, but luckily help is at hand in the form of a Frog. When the Frog and the Duck fail to eject the truck, they enlist the help of a Sheep who just happens to be passing by in his green jeep. But even the might of the sheep can’t move the truck. Fortunately, there is a nearby lake and at this very moment a clever goat floats by relaxing in his boat. He devises a cunning plan which does indeed set the truck free… but with unexpected and hilarious consequences.

“This is the duck driving home in a truck. This is the track which is taking him back. This is the rock stuck by the truck and this is the muck where the truck becomes stuck.” Thus is the scene set for a comic escapade involving a sheep in a jeep and a goat in a motorboat, trying all a manner of tricks to free the cantankerous 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 Magazine Nov ‘99
