A delightfully duckish picture book of farmyard disaster.
Duck can see that something is falling from the sky. He tries to warn the other farmyard animals by telling them to "Duck!" but they won't listen … A hilarious picture book of farmyard disaster by award-winning author Meg McKinlay and emerging illustrator Nathaniel Eckstrom.
Meg McKinlay grew up in Bendigo, Victoria, in a book-loving, TV- and car-free household. On the long and winding path to becoming a children's writer, she has worked a variety of jobs including swim instructor, tour guide, translator and teacher. These days, she lives with her family near the ocean in Fremantle and divides her time between teaching and writing, a balance that swings wildly between chaos and calm. She is always busy cooking up more books.
Nathaniel Eckstrom is an illustrator based in Sydney, Australia. He has worked on a number of children's picture books including The Ugly Duckling, Me and Moo and the Ricker Racker Club. DUCK!, written by Meg McKinlay, is his first book with Walker.
