Wrong Way by Mark Macleod, illustrated by Judith Rossell
The story is a bit light and a little too heavy-handed in its moral in places, but the real appeal of this picture book is the pictures. The ducklings are adorably fluffy and Rossell has perfectly captured their gawky awkwardness and long legs. Their mother is comfortably fluffy and agreeably indulgent. The soft pastels and delicate details of the ducks and landscape are extremely appealing.
Verdict: A delightfully calming book for toddlers and well worth the extra effort to purchase it - Kane Miller titles can be purchased here as well as through independent bookstores and Barnes and Noble.
