‘A wonderful, tender evocation of friendship and how its power can help you overcome your worst fears. A pure splash of joy.’ The Daily Mail

Shortlisted for Oscar's Book Prize 2022

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 by Smriti Halls (shortlisted for Oscar's Book Prize 2021 and for Children's Illustrated Book of the Year at the British Book Awards 2021).

‘A beautiful book, with a zen-like balance, and full of light and drama, too.’ Benji Davies, creator of The Storm Whale
