In this Caldecott Honor winner, a mother duck loses her eighth duckling, and asks the other pond animals for help (though the missing one is never lost, only cleverly concealed in each picture). "Children will giggle as they glimpse the hider, a feature that makes the book a game as well as a story and a series of lovely paintings," PW decided.
