Get your Ducks in a Row

If you're looking for some quacky, whacky fun, enter the world of Max the Duck. If you're a fan of Max, you'll love one of his latest, DUCKS IN A ROW. And if you've never picked up a Max the Duck book, now is the time.

In DUCKS IN A ROW, Max takes some time to relax, but as he leans back in his chair, he realizes everyone has something to do, except him. Feeling a bit unwanted, Max is excited when he hears the doorbell ring. It's Aunt Pat, Aunt Dot, and Aunt Flo who are on their way south, but stop to visit until the first snowfall. As soon as the aunts come in, they need Max quite a bit as he ends up doing everything from bringing their books to finding their glasses to running their baths and more. Although it's nice to be needed, Max gets to the point where he's not sure how much he can take.

One of my favorite Duck books is DUCK SOUP, so when I saw an easy reader, I couldn't wait to check it out. Jackie Urbanovic's illustrations are absolutely amazing and so much fun, it makes it hard to put these books down. I often find Level 1 Easy Readers to be so choppy and unappealing story-wise, but that is not the case with Urbanovic's latest. She certainly has her DUCKS IN A ROW!
