The pictures take this book from a good story into something extra special. First, we’re shown a giant duck factory, run by alligators. One egg rolls off the assembly line and is secretly taken home by an alligator worker. Over time, instead of eating the fattened duck, they become friends. Eventually, the little duck leads the entire population of Ducktown to a place safe from alligators, although they allow one visitor--His dear friend.The pictures in “Sitting Ducks” are simple outlined characters, but highly detailed and three-dimensional. This is a book of simple, good fun.
