The Duck Never Blinks
(Hardback) - 06/07/2023
You see that duck over there? You could watch it all day and it wouldn’t blink.
Nothing works – not shouting, not jokes, or even sad stories. Maybe you have some other ideas? Just don’t take your eyes off the duck, and don’t, even for a second, think about blinking!
From award-winning author and illustrator Alex Latimer comes this sharply witty picture book that will have every child trying to outwit this devilish duck... if they can stop giggling, that is!
