Clumsy Duck

Clumsy Duck by Britta Teckentrup (Koala Books)
PB RRP $14.99
ISBN 978-1-74276-035-3
Reviewed by Jenny Heslop

Clumsy Duck has trouble staying on his feet. Hills make him trip, mud makes him slip and he cannot get a good grip to perch on a branch. It is very frustrating for him. But his friend Chick is sure there is a good reason for his big feet. It is just a matter of finding it.

Clumsy Duck is a sweet story about friendship, embracing differences and perseverance. Young children will be charmed by Duck, Chick and the small band of followers they pick up along their travels. They will also be reassured by the notion that everyone is different and it is just a matter of finding your own special talent.

The illustrations are charming and bright and match the upbeat positive feel of the story. This is a delightful picture book for toddlers to six year olds.
