Super Duck Crash

A natural read-aloud choice. Booklist

One of the best anti–heroes of all time is back – this time hoping to fly a kite. Unfortunately when the wind does finally arrive, Frog gets swept away. Can Super Duck and his friends save frog? Perfect read out loud bedtime reading. Angels and Urchins

With the irrepressible spirit of Donald and Daffy, the indomitable Duck is back in a new reincarnation as self-appointed Super Duck. Yet despite donning the prerequisite red cape and mask Super Duck finds himself in a characteristic tangle this time as he tries to rescue Frog who gets blown away in a kite. The rhyming text trips along at a lively pace complemented by a mix of comic strip-style images that give an animated feel to the story. And it perfectly matches the rising mayhem that always seems to follow Duck on all his adventures. A fun and playful story – for once Duck really does prove to be the hero of the day, even if he is more like an accidental one. A delightful sequel to the million selling Duck. Junior Magazine

Can Super Duck save the day? Superheroes never tire children and Jez Alborough’s comical creation is a super must for all young readers. This is a poetically versed book that begs to be read out loud with belly laughs galore. And as I often get into character when reading these books to my children I can see I’m going to have a fun time mimicking Super Duck’s voice. Thanks Jez! South Wales Argus
