Mucky Duck is a very special duck - he likes painting, cooking, playing football...and he also likes getting VERY MUCKY! And one way or another he always seems to get his friend Oliver very mucky too. Children will love the repetitive line 'O you Mucky Duck!' that appears frequently within the pages. And Neal Layton has used collage to great effect to create some really messy pages...our only advice is to dive right in. Perfect for reading aloud.
