Amazon.com Review

"Splish, clomp, pleep, plop, plunk, sloosh, slosh, slink, zing." Who can resist a read-aloud featuring sounds like these? When, "Down by the marsh, by the sleepy, slimy marsh, one duck gets stuck in the muck," who comes to the rescue? Two fish, splishing, for starters. Then three moose clomping, four crickets pleeping, and so on. Still, "No luck. Still stuck." It takes a whole lot of teamwork to get this particular stuck duck unstuck from the muck, but this cheerful bunch is definitely up to the task.

From one duck to 10 dragonflies, the muddy fun never stops in Phyllis Root's chunky little board book. Young readers will giggle their way through the numbers, and by the time the duck's foot is released with a "Spluck!" counting will be a cinch. Jane Chapman's lush illustrations are full of marshy colors and muddy detail. The right side of each two-page spread shows the hapless duck earnestly waiting for liberation by its lively rescuers, while on the opposite side the featured number is printed, large and bold, over the text, and the splishers and ploppers are depicted again for easy counting. Chapman's enchanting art is also found in The Emperor's Egg, among other titles, and Root's other popular stories include Kiss the Cow!. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1AThis colorful counting book tells the tale of a poor duck that has one foot "stuck in the muck." In quick succession, groups of different animals try to set the victim free-two fish, three moose, four crickets, etc. None of the creatures is successful until they all work together and the beleaguered bird is finally able to fly away. Bold, playful, gouache paintings featuring bright rich colors show the bird's plight. The duck's frustration, surprise, and ultimate delight are evident in the expressive artwork. Unfortunately, the repetitive narrative is not as effective. The sentences are long and the rhyme is sometimes forced ("Nine snakes/leaving little wakes/slither to the duck./Slink, slink"). Still, a skilled reader may be able to transform this into a rollicking read-aloud and the illustrations will carry well in a group setting. Children will be eager to repeat the chant, "Help! Help! Who can help?"AHeide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, WI
