What to expect

Quentin was a duck with a very quick quack.
‘QUCK!’ said Quentin. ‘What’s wrong with me?’

Quentin’s quack has lost its A. Do any of the other animals have one to spare? Not likely! APES don’t want to be PES. SNAKES don’t want to be SNKES. PANDAS don’t want to be PNDAS or even PANDS. Will Quentin be stuck with a very quick QUCK?!

Critics Review

  • An hilarious exploration of the alphabet

    Parents In Touch
  • A quacking read aloud, a fun introduction to vowels and a brilliant way of showing children they need to be flexible in their approach to letters and sounds.

    Red Reading Hub
  • The children at school gave this book a rarely awarded 100 out of 10….An absolute delight of a book so please go and grab one for your bookshelves as quickly as you can!

    The Bookbag
  • From the creators of the excellent ‘Oi, Frog’, this is a must-have book for class libraries to share with children who are learning to read and write. …Jim Field’s illustrations work brilliantly for this story – but be warned, you’ll need to practice before attempting to read it aloud!
