Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1-The "duck" of the title is actually a cat, a fact that children will immediately recognize. But the duckling calling out to the feline still insists on calling it a duck and wanting to be friends. In spite of his persistent badgering, the cat politely refuses to join the little guy in dancing the puddle stomp. But after napping, the cat suddenly has a change of heart and decides to befriend the duckling after all. Bramsen's rhyming text is accompanied by bright illustrations in a pastoral setting. The detailed drawings are lovely-every blade of grass, flower petal, piece of tree bark, drop of splashed water, yellow fuzz on the duckling, and strand of white, black, and brown fur on the cat is meticulously rendered. Duckling displays several priceless facial expressions, although the cat doesn't look nearly as annoyed as it sounds. However, the story is slight, and the cat's decision to become the duckling's playmate is unconvincing. An additional offering.-Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CTα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

A duckling pursues friendship with a cat, convinced the feline is actually another duck. Predictably, the cat rebuffs him, so the duckling puddle-stomps off on his own. Later the cat reconsiders, tracking down his new pal to proclaim himself also a duck with a “QUACK!”—although he draws the line at getting wet. Duck is so pleased he declares, “Well, duck or cat, you’re my friend now, / which makes me want to shout MEOW!” Bramsen, who also illustrated The Yellow Tutu (2009), contributes both text and pictures, employing a similar palette—sky-blue backgrounds and bright yellow—although here it is the duckling that is yellow rather than a tutu. Her realistic characters exude a cheery, greeting-card feel, which is generally pleasing except for the cat’s piercing stare. Rhyming helps make the text predictable, although certain phrases such as “missed the boat” may confuse young listeners. Pair with Willems’ Cat the Cat, Who Is That? (2010) and Cooper’s Pumpkin Soup (1999) for a friendship-themed story hour. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Kay Weisman
