Randy Cecil has illustrated numerous books for children, including We've All Got Bellybuttons (9780744593204) by David Martin, My Father the Dog (9780744593914) by Elizabeth Bluemle and One Is a Snail, Ten Is a Crab (9781844281640) by April Pulley Sayre and Jeff Sayre. He is also the author-illustrator of Gator, about Duck's friend and fellow merry-go-round animal. Randy lives in Texas, USA.From Booklist:
Returning to the scene of his book Gator (2007), Cecil here introduces another of the animals, Duck. Duck’s dream is to fly, but with wooden wings. He’s happily distracted when he meets little Duckling, but eventually Duck realizes his pal needs to learn how to fly. The question is: How is he going to do that? Much of the sentiment here will appeal more to an adult than a child, especially the way Duck must let Duckling go and try his wings. Then there’s the climactic moment when full-grown Duckling reappears; now it’s his turn to take Duck on his back and show him what flying is all about. Cecil’s varied design keeps visual interest. Some pictures are full page, some are round cameos in frames, and still others are impressive two-page spreads. The animals are charmers, and though the message may be lost on children, they will still respond to the warmth and love that the ducks feel for each other. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ilene Cooper
