Watch out! Here comes Duck in a brand new edition of the first book in the million copy bestselling series!
This is the tale of a duck in a truck -
a truck that was stuck in some yucky brown muck.
A sheep in a jeep and a frog in a bush
saw the truck stuck and gave it a push.
But the truck stayed stuck!
What now, can you guess?
Could a goat in a boat
get them out of this mess?

Leo has loved reading this book since he first found it in the library. He loves Duck's truck and thinks it's really funny when he gets it stuck in the mud, sending his shopping flying everywhere. The story flows really well with the blocks of illustration and rhyming text. Leo laughs at all of the sounds throughout the story, especially 'twang'! It's a great book with lots of fun throughout, as Duck and his friends try to get the truck out of the mud.

A great rhyming story about a duck who's truck gets stuck and how his friends help him get unstuck. My children love this and its lots of fun to read, lots of laughs as we play with the fantastic sounds it uses.

Have recently rediscovered this book, and had forgotten how lovely, bright and detailed the illustrations are (I have this book memorised, as it was my 12 year old favourite when she was small!)
 It is a lovely little rhyming story of a duck who gets stuck and others come to his aid to help him (the duck maybe is lacking a few manners though)
 Very catchy and great for though learning to read.

We liked all the animals and my little one loved the truck. Nice big pictures and rhyming sentences. The story is very funny we laughed a lot.

I read it to RCHogan aged 2 aged 2 & to AIHogan aged 1 aged 1

This is a sweet, playful story about a duck who gets his truck stuck in the mud and is helped out by an assortment of animals. There is a cheeky ending where the duck leaves his helpers in the mud as he drives away! 
The prose is lovely to read aloud as it rhymes - so flows very well. You will get through it quite quickly as there's only a sentence to a page really.
The illustrations are bright and cheerful; there are lots of detail in them to discuss at length.
This was an immediate winner with my little boy especially as he loves both ducks and trucks!
It is definitely worth a read - especially if you only have a couple of minutes to squeeze in a story.

This book was a good little read to my two boys, we made the animal noises of the animals the Duck encountered which made my Riley roar with laughter and this book rhymes which makes it quite fun for the little ones. Was short enough to keep my one year old engaged and I would definitely recommend it if you only have time for a two minute story time cuddle.

A fun rhyming story about a rude duck who gets stuck in the muck. Some kind animals stop to help and they end up getting stuck in the muck too. Ideal for young children with fun illustrations.
