The Duck Who Didn't Like Water by Steve Small
An Alien in the Jam Factory by Chrissie Sains
A wise, funny fable about how we don't need to like the same things to find our perfect pal.
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? This endearing, gorgeously illustrated tale marks the author-illustrator debut for Steve Small, illustrator of the highly acclaimed, I'm Sticking with You.
Praise for I'm Sticking With You;
‘Deftly humorous… a lovely book to cuddle up with’ The Guardian
‘Comical, bold and tender’ The Sunday Times
‘This celebration of friendship has future classic stamped all over it.’ Daily Mail
‘A warm and endearing celebration of everything a friendship can be’ The Bookseller
