Description of this Book

A cat who thinks he s a duck? He must be Quackers!! This quirky funny book is about standing out, fitting in, and building a life with room for all. Quackers is a duck. Sure, he may have paws and whiskers. And his quacks might sound more like...well, meows, but he lives among ducks, everyone he knows is a duck, and he's happy. Then Quackers meets another duck who looks like him (& talks like him, too!) but he calls himself a cat. So silly! Quackers loves being among his new friends the cats, but he also misses his duck friends, and so he finds a way to combine the best of both worlds. Part cat, part duck, all Quackers!

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Wong s delightful illustrations perfectly capture the sweet silliness of this story. Children will appreciate Quackers s quirky dilemma, and the underlying message that friends do not have to be all the same will surely not be lost on young listeners. -- School Library Journal
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 1 stars (out of 5)
