Description

From the award-winning Kes Gray and the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Jim Field, comes an hilarious tale about one duck's quest for a missing vowel! 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?! Brilliant for reading out loud and teaching children about vowels and animals. Praise for Oi, Frog! also by Kes Gray and Jim Field: 'An absolute treat.' - Daily Mail Kes is one of the Independent's TOP TEN children's authors and winner of the Red House Children's Book Award. Jim's first picture book Cats Ahoy! won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize in 2011.
