With shades of The Velveteen Rabbit and Mick Inkpen's Nothing, Dave Gunson tells the wistful story of a little rubber duck who dreams of becoming real. Eventually bought by a family with young boys, Ducky's early life is full of fun and excitement until the boys grow up and she is left all alone and sadly neglected on the bathroom shelf.
But like all good fairytales, Ducky's life has a happy ending.
Beautiful illustrations make this a lovely package, ensuring the story will be one to keep and treasure.
