Keep Up, Duck!

By Ivan Bates, Rachel Bates

A sweet, joyful and charmingly funny springtime read-aloud celebrating the determination of a little duckling who finds inventive ways to keep up with his family.

Mamma Duck and her ducklings are paddling to the pond. But the littlest duck, Puck, keeps falling behind. “Keep up, Duck!” his mamma quacks. But Puck is determined – even if he can’t swim very fast, he WILL find a way to keep up! The youngest of readers will soon be joining in with Mamma Duck’s irresistible refrain in this noisy, joyful and bouncy read-aloud from the illustrator of children’s favourite, Do Like a Duck Does!

Customer reviews


'This book is messy, noisy, and fun. It makes no apologies for the riot of a good time it is going to bring to both grown-ups and their little ones. It is bursting with life, with the joys of life and with plenty of characters, living in and around the pond, for children to identify and get to know. Warm, playful, and cute.' Armadillo Magazine
