Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-"This is Duck. Duck lives at my house. Duck thinks I'm the greatest. I'm Duck's hero." So begins a young boy's introduction to his favorite stuffed toy. They spend every moment together including mealtime, bath time, and, of course, bedtime. But when Duck goes missing, and the shopkeeper, postman, bus driver, and dog next door haven't seen him, the child is heartbroken. Devastated, he climbs onto the couch, curls up in the corner, and snuggles between the cushions until he suddenly smells, feels, and finds his best friend. Soft pencil and wash illustrations on white backgrounds with large, bold text convey the mood and emotions of the boy and make it easy for young children to read the pictures. This Australian import delicately and skillfully explores the special bond that many children share with their "lovey." The last page ends with a different take on their relationship: "This is Duck. Duck lives at my house. I think Duck's the greatest. Duck's my hero." High on the cuteness scale, this will be a welcome addition to preschool collections.-Rachel Kamin, North Suburban Synagogue Beth El, Highland Park, IL (c) Copyright 2010.

From Booklist

Holmes offers a fresh spin on an old favorite—the child who can’t be away from his stuffed animal. Here that child is the towheaded narrator, and the stuffie, a small yellow duck. But in the boy’s mind, it’s Duck who needs him: “Duck’s not frightened of anything when he’s with me.” As he recites the ways Duck feels secure when the boy’s around, even little ones will probably sense trouble on the way. And sure enough, with the turn of a page, Duck is gone. The boy asks the shopkeeper, the postman (“He smells like a blanket”), and the bus driver, but no Duck. A series of sad pictures shows the boy alone and then resistant to parents, who try to take his mind off his stuffed animal. Finally, in one joyous spread, the boy finds what he so desperately missed. The light, airy ink-and-watercolor artwork, brightened by yellows, keeps its focus on the boy and his duck. Perhaps not as dramatic as Knuffle Bunny (2004) but every bit as moving. Preschool. --Ilene Cooper

My 18 month old son loves this book. He walks around the house saying "Duckie, duckie, duckie". A sweet story about a boy and his favorite toy. The toy goes missing and the boy is sad, but so happy when the toy is found.

I bought this book because my one year old likes ducks, having never read it. The book came and we sat down before her bedtime and I started reading it. By the end, on the last page, I was teary eyed. I was so surprised at how simple and sweet this story is. I love the perspective of a small child showing how much they can care for a special toy. Love it!

Format: Hardcover
This is an awesome book. Both my kids, 3 and 1 yr,(and myself) love this book. My youngest will sit and look at it for forever. It inspired her to say her first word, "duck!". It's a permanent night time story book. (we usually have 3).
