9780061366833: The Duck and the Kangaroo

Meet Duck.

Duck has a yen for travel and adventure. Duck also has some very wet, cold feet and a gift for loyalty and compromise.

Meet Kangaroo.

Kangaroo has been around the world and back, and is looking for a little bit of luck.

Or a duck.

When Duck and Kangaroo meet, it’s a match made in . . . heaven.

Ah, love—ain’t it grand?

And who so happy,—O who, As the Duck and the Kangaroo?

About the Author:

Edward Lear (1812-1888) was an author and illustrator who popularized limericks and is perhaps best known for his poem "The Owl and the Pussycat."



Jane Wattenberg is the creator of many books for young readers, including Mrs. Mustard's Baby Faces, Mrs. Mustard's Beastly Babies, Henny-Penny, and Never Cry Woof!, as well as the illustrator of This Is the Rain, by Lola M. Schaefer. She got her first camera as a young child and found her first experience in a darkroom, at age seventeen, thrilling. Since then, photography has been her passion. She photographed the kangaroo in this book in Australia, and the duck at the San Francisco Zoo.

Jane Wattenberg lives with her husband in San Francisco, California, where she raised three sons and now raises chickens and harvests honey from her own beehives.

Review:

“Masterful...Wattenberg’s quirky photo collages are perfectly suited for Lear’s nonsensical text.” (Booklist)

“Top marks for visual exuberance; this is the first separate edition of the verses available in this country in decades.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“This title’s delightfully silly verse, paired perfectly with elaborate pictures to scrutinize, should not be missed.” (School Library Journal (starred review))
