From the creators of the bestselling Oi Frog! Frog 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.
