With trips to New York, Paris, London, and Rome under their belts, Dodsworth and the duck head for Japan: "The plane glided over Mount Fuji. Tokyo sparkled in the distance. Dodsworth was a little nervous." Dodsworth has good reason to be nervous--the duck bumps into a rickshaw, falls into a koi pond (he can't swim), and knocks over a tray of wagashi! Readers will love the slapstick humor and the odd-couple friendship between Dodsworth and the duck. Four engaging chapters of short sentences, clean design, and gem-like little paintings of the Land of the Rising Sun make it easy for early readers to enjoy the journey.
