One Duck Stuck

One Duck Stuck

by Phyllis Root Illustrated by Jane Chapman

Down by the marsh, by the sleepy, slimy marsh, one duck gets stuck in the muck, down by the deep green marsh. Help! Help! Who can help! In this counting book, increasingly larger groups of animals try to help a duck stuck in the marsh. Rhyme, repetition, and a wide variety of mucky sounds lead children through one duck's dilemma to his final freedom.
