Get swept away with 10 little rubber ducks!
(Book with sound chip)
goes the rubber duck machine.
Out pop little yellow rubber ducks
one after the other…
A brand-new batch of rubber ducks is loaded on to a ship and sent off to be delivered to children everywhere. But when a storm strikes, 10 little ducks are tossed into the sea and swept away in 10 different directions – with some wonderfully unexpected adventures along the way.
Come ride the waves as legendary children's book author and illustrator, Eric Carle, explores numbers, directions, opposites, geography, animals and more in an extraordinary interactive picture book, beautifully illustrated with his unique collage-style art. And for a final surprise, the last page contains a duck with a squeaking sound chip for a special treat at the end of the story!

Reviews for the HB edition:
‘Carle's repetitively structured story works perfectly and shows that he has lost none of his touch in the 30 years since The Very Hungry Caterpillar was published.' The Guardian
Lovely review with picture taken from the book. 'It's the perfect-to-read-aloud text and gentle humour, combined with an emotionally satisfying – if unlikely – ending, and those glorious illustrations that will make it a bedtime favourite.' Time Out
'Children's author and illustrator, Carle explores numbers, geography, animals and more in an extraordinary interactive picture book in which rubber ducks are ship-wrecked and swept in all directions to amazing adventures.' The Sun
'Made of Carle's characteristic bold collage, cut from textured scraps of scraped and scrubbed paint, this bright and delightful story typically crams in lots of learn…It shows seas of different colours, suggesting different weather, has a touching ending and, as a bonus, a button at the end that makes a gentle, rubber-duck squeak.' Book of the week, The Sunday Times
With colourful creatures, numbers and a beautiful story, this is one book kids are sure to read again and again.' Grove MagazineAbout the Author:
