Book Synopsis



Perfect for reading aloud, this counting book not only contains bright bold illustrations but also has lots of . . . sound effects that children will love to replicate. -- Booklist

Down by the marsh,
by the sleepy,
slimy marsh,
one duck
gets stuck in the muck . . .

Can two fish, tails going swish, help? What about three moose, munching on spruce? Bright, spirited illustrations by Jane Chapman enhance this one-of-a-kind counting tale by Phyllis Root -- a feast of sounds and numbers that will have listeners scrambling to join in the slippy, sloppy fun.



Review Quotes




Just as the title of this satisfying counting book says, there's one duck stuck (in the muck, as it turns out). Different groups of marshland creatures, from two fish to ten dragonflies, appear with an offer of help . . . [children will be] enchanted by Chapman's vibrant pictures and the immensely satisfying sounds and rhythms of Root's text.
--Publishers Weekly

Perfect for reading aloud, this counting book not only contains bright bold illustrations but also has lots of 'clomp, clomp' and 'splish, splash, ' as well as other sound effects that children will love to replicate... great fun and sure to become an instant favorite among the toddler crowd.
--Booklist



About the Author



Phyllis Root says she wanted One Duck Stuck to be "a north woods wetlands counting book, accurate to the marshes of Minnesota. All the animals are actually found there. I love to go canoeing and camping, and this book is a composite of my experiences."

Jane Chapman does all her painting in her kitchen, looking out onto the garden. "The color blue in One Duck Stuck is the exact same blue that's in my kitchen," she says. Although she has a pet tortoise named Muggs, who at age 70 is a family heirloom, one day she would like to have a duck as well.
