Duck & Penguin are NOT Friends


‘Duck & Penguin are NOT Friends’ but that’s not what Betty and Maud see. They believe their favourite toys love each other. ‘Kiss, kiss, kiss,’ says Maud.

When Betty and Maud have a play date, Betty pushes Maud on the swing, but Duck pushes Penguin OFF the swing! The toys throw sand in the sandpit. They throw eggs when Betty and Maud are baking.

Do Betty and Maud see their favourite toys’ misbehaviour? Can they guess what’s really happening? Could they mend the situation so that Betty and Maud really DO love each other?

I love the big white space pages, and the bold images. The sequences of Duck and Penguin’s egg attacks, for example, are so funny. The bright images marry perfectly with the cheery unawareness and focus on play.

Bookwagon is delighted to recommend ‘Duck & Penguin are NOT Friends‘ to its youngest readers. This title will (egg) crack you up!
