"Story hour alert! Here's a book with a clever premise, a bouncy text, and sunny, funny pictures. . . . Supremely satisfying." -- BOOKLIST (starred review)
Mama Duck has a good hunch that the big brown creature waddling behind her babies is no duck! As the foxy impostor sneaks closer and closer to Mama Duck's trailing brood, little ones will delight in shouting out his identity. Infectious rhythms and fresh, expressive watercolors liven up the pursuit, which ends when Mama Duck confronts the villain, beak to snout, and beats him at his own game.

About the Author:

Judy Hindley, who has written more than fifty books for children, has a special knack for capturing the language and subjects that delight preschoolers. Among her books are THE BIG RED BUS, THE PERFECT LITTLE MONSTER, and THE BEST THING ABOUT A PUPPY. She is also the author of the immensely popular EYES, NOSE, FINGERS, AND TOES.

Ivan Bates debuted as an illustrator with his art for Sam McBratney’s THE DARK AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRS. He is also the illustrator of JUST ONE! and JUST YOU A ME by Sam McBratney. DO LIKE A DUCK DOES!, Ivan Bates’s first collaboration with Judy Hindley, features some of the animals on the farm where he lives with his wife and baby son.

From School Library Journal:

reschool-Grade 1--While out for a walk, Mama Duck and her five babies meet a stranger who claims that he is also a duck, despite his "wicked foxy nose" and matching smile. Not fooled for a minute, Mama puts him to the test, watching closely as he tries to imitate the birds' behavior. After catching him drooling over one of her offspring, she leads the group into a river, where all of the ducks pop back up to the surface and the intruder sinks like a stone. Filled with bouncy rhymes and alliteration, the text is delightful to read aloud. The tension builds throughout the story, but the tone remains light, and there is never any doubt that Mama Duck has things firmly under control. The double-page watercolor paintings feature the earthy tones of the farmyard setting. Soft gray and black lines add detail and a sense of movement to the pictures. Humorous moments are highlighted, as the fox tries to waddle, chokes down a mouthful of bugs, and holds his nose while jumping into the water. His appearance goes from sleek and sinister to damp and defeated, while Mama Duck never ruffles a feather. A perfect choice for storytime, this enjoyable tale pairs well with others about foxes outfoxed, such as Mem Fox's Hattie and the Fox (Bradbury, 1987) or Pat Hutchins's Rosie's Walk (Macmillan, 1968).
