Duck and Penguin Are Not Friends

Betty and Maud are the best of friends, and so surely their stuffed toys are too! But despite what Betty and Maud might think, Duck and Penguin are definitely NOT friends. They do not want to swing together, they do not want to cook together, and they certainly DO NOT want to play baby dolls together...

A side-splitting insight into the secret world of toys, from former Dreamworks animator and illustrator Julia Woolf.


"Julia Woolf conveys this witty story about friendship – or not – most effectively through the venomous scowls and frowns and ferocious looks between the two soft toys in contrast to the brilliant warm smiles of Betty and Maud."

"A lovely book to share and discuss about friendship with all children, especially with those children who have difficulty making friends."

"A very funny, cute picture book... perfect for beginner readers."
Primary Times

"Lovely book for celebrating friendship and how you can tolerate and get along with people."
The School Librarian

"A witty little tale whose expressive illustrations are a wonderful reflection of the shenanigans that go on during many a play date."
Echo (Cork)
