Audrey is bigger than she was yesterday. Now she needs a bigger house. So she tells her dad to build her one.

At the top of a tree.

It is an ideal house. It has a bathtub for snorkeling, a place to drink tea, and somewhere to hide the dirty cups.

The house is perfect in every way.

Except for one thing ...

This humorous story explores the clash between a quest for independence and the longing for security. Emerging author Jenny Hughes and acclaimed illustrator Jonathan Bentley have created a picture book with outstanding warmth, sensitivity, and insight.

SELECT REVIEWS:

  • Praise for HAVE YOU SEEN MY DUCK? (by Janet A. Holmes and illustrated by Jonathan Bentley)
    "High on the cuteness scale, this will be a welcome addition to preschool collections." --SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

    "Bentley's charming watercolors present the epitome of a little boy (bare feet and all) and his well-loved stuffy." --KIRKUS REVIEWS

    "Both the narrative and the illustrations are particularly successful at communicating the boy's feelings .... The pencil-and-watercolor illustrations have a casual, sketchy informality, with loose pencil lines adding detail and a sense of simplicity; the art reinforces the child-centeredness of the tale by never showing any adult faces." --THE BULLETIN OF THE CENTER FOR CHILDREN'S BOOKS
