Sitting Duck - Jackie Urbanovic

Harper, 2010
"ages 4-7"
32 pages.
A strong 4.
Endpapers: Purple background with various "snapshots" of characters

Apparently this is Jackie Urbanovic's fourth story about Max the duck. It's adorable!

Max, the duck, and Brody, the dog, babysit for Anabel, Brady's niece. It is not an easy job. And when Brody falls asleep and Anabel and Max go outside, the antics really begin! It starts with a trampoline and ends with Anabel getting rescued from the tree where she gets entangled.

The illustrations are joyful...colorful...expressive. A really cute book.
