"Baby Duck is illustrated with seductive charm by Jill Barton." The Financial Times * "Brilliant combination of text and pictures... What makes it such a good book is the range of human emotions conveyed in the clipped text and the expressions of the ducks. A night after night book for two to four-year-olds."
