Plop! goes the drip that drops from the cup. Duck looks down and Duck looks up. 'A leak in the roof, oh! What bad luck. This is a job for FIX-IT DUCK.' So begins the hilarious new adventure of Duck and his friends Sheep, Goat and Frog. Duck decides that not only can he fix his own leaking roof, but that Sheep with his broken window would also benefit from his DIY expertise...Of course, by the time Duck has lent a hand, his hapless friends are left requiring even more repair work than they did in the first place! And what caused Duck's leaking roof? Could it be that he forgot to turn his bath tap off?!? Age 3-7 Review: 'A rumbustious story... Great fun' The Bookseller 'A jaunty delight' The Guardian Reviews for Duck in the Truck include: 'Rhyme, illustration, wit and inventiveness combine to produce outstanding quality.'
