The Duck Who Didn't Like Water

Illustrated by Steve Small

See a duck take to the water of friendship in this gorgeously warm, funny book about the joy of making an unexpected connection.

Duck is not like other ducks. Duck doesn’t like water and is perfectly fine alone, thank you very much. But then, one dark and stormy night, an outgoing, water-loving, and very lost Frog turns up at Duck’s door. Can this odd couple find Frog’s home? And will they find friendship along the way?
