'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
'As usual, his inimitable illustrations have the unfathomable quality of an innocent childlike collage combined with a glorious work of art.' Book of the month, Junior
With colourful creatures, numbers and a beautiful story, this is one book kids are sure to read again and again.' Grove MagazineAbout the Author:
