Review:

Duck in the TruckWith a nod to Dr. Seuss and a wink to John Burningham, Jez Alborough deals an irresistible lesson in rhyme and analogy, as well as storytelling, which is hugely entertaining. `Child Education'Alborough's pictures are addictive, combining graphic simplicity with painterly qualities... Duck in the Truck is a picture book where rhyme, illustration, wit and inventiveness combine to produce outstanding quality. `TES Primary'Fix-It DuckAlborough's text is perfect for reading out loud and the mix of close-up and panoramic illustrations give an animated, live-action feel. `Junior'Colourful, arresting and bursting with action. `Child Education'Alborough's illustrations are big and bold... the rhythmic text is a jaunty delight and brilliant for reading aloud. `The Guardian'
