Description

A duckling lost at sea discovers his musical talent in this enchanting, heart-warming story from Timothy Basil Ering.

Through an exhilarating read-aloud text and extraordinary artwork, award-winning author-illustrator Timothy Basil Ering shares a thrilling and fantastical story of a farmer, a dancing dog, a fiddle, and one brave, tiny musical duckling that will warm the heart. Captain Alfred is sailing home with new ducks for his farm when his little boat is caught in an unexpected and mighty storm. Everything aboard the ship is flung to the far reaches of the sea, including the very special and beautiful duck egg he had nestled safely inside his violin case. But perhaps all is not lost…

Publisher Review

"The illustrations are delightful, and this should be a really good story to share." * The School Librarian * Full of heart and wonderfully quirky is Ering's lastest tale. [...] Such are the quality of Ering's prose and his paintings with their thick brush-strokes and delicate pen/ink lines, that one can almost hear the sounds of the beautiful, swirling music and feel the eddying fog. An enchantingly lovely, life-affirming book that resonates long after its covers have been closed, and even those with that tactile spine and embossed lettering and images, are alluring. * Red Reading Hub *
