Review:

Praise for the much-loved 'Duck in the Truck': With a nod to Dr. Suess and a wink to John Burningham, Jez Alborough deals an irresistible lesson in rhyme and analogy, as well as storytelling, which is hugely entertaining. 'Child Education' Alborough's pictures are addictive, combining graphic simplicity with painterly qualities! Duck in the Truck is a picture book where rhyme, illustration, wit and inventiveness combine to produce outstanding quality. 'TES Primary' Praise for Fix-it-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' 'Colourful, arresting and busting with action.' Child Education More praise for 'Duck in the Truck: 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' Duck in the Truck is packed with all the rhyme, colour, imagination and humour a young reader could ask for. 'Young Book Trust' More praise for 'Fix-it-Duck': Rhyme, illustration, wit and inventiveness combine to produce outstanding quality. 'TES Primary' With light-hearted tension, wry characterisations and lots of squishy mud, this tale makes for a quacking good read-aloud. 'Publishers Weekly', US Praise for 'Balloon': Confirms Alborough's reputation for simple, lively, rhythmic picture books with a sense of fun. 'Sunday Times' Immensely appealing. 'Bookseller' You'll be coming back to this picture book again and again. 'Independent'
