Turn each graduated page to help Duckie find her curiously missing ducklings in this beguiling follow-up to DUCKIE'S RAINBOW.

Duckie wants to go for a swim with her family, but where are her ten ducklings? She hunts patiently by the garden shed, around the apple tree, under the wheelbarrow, on the swing, in the bucket, and plenty more places. Meanwhile, to little ones' delight, with each turn of a cleverly shaped page -- each one smaller than the last -- one more duckling appears on the far left-hand side, behind Duckie's back. The cumulative visual joke, rendered in bright, sunny colors and enchantingly simple shapes, will make a big splash with even the littlest listeners, who are sure to be giggling all the while

About the Author:

Frances Barry introduced the winsome character Duckie in the eye-popping concept-book debut DUCKIE'S RAINBOW. Of DUCKIE'S DUCKLINGS, she says, "I hope children enjoy the playful pantoesque ('behind you') way of counting ducklings as they follow Duckie in a line. And because children are aware of the 'leg pulling' game adults play when pretending not to see them, they may end up wondering, What is Duckie really thinking?" Frances Barry has worked as a designer of greeting cards and stationery and has painted several public and private murals.

From Booklist:

PreS. Mother Duckie wants to take her ducklings for a swim, but they are nowhere in sight. She searches around the yard and in the garden, under the apples trees and the cabbage bushes. Unknown to her, the bright-yellow brood is gathering behind her, and with each turn of the cleverly trimmed pages, a new duckling appears to join the lineup. Finally Mother Duckie turns around, discovers the happy clan, and gathers everyone into the swimming hole. Barry's uncluttered paper collages are excellent. The elemental shapes and vivid, saturated colors nicely fit the book's handsome design, which features thick paper with rounded covers, and pages that are increasingly cropped to reveal the expanding line of ducks. Toddlers will heartily enjoy spotting the ducklings long before oblivious Duckie does, even as they point and count the family members. Familiar garden objects and creatures march along the endpapers, providing additional counting opportunities. Counting books are ubiquitous, but this is an unusually striking one. Gillian Engberg
