One Duck Stuck
A Mucky Ducky Counting Book

author: Phyllis Root

illustrator: Jane Chapman

Can two fish, tails going swish, help? Will three moose, munching on spruce, be able to pull the unlucky duck out of the muck? Perfectly sized for small hands, this counting rhyme is a feast of sounds and numbers that will have young listeners scrambling to join the slippy, sloppy fun!
Count all of the animals who come splishing, plunking, slooshing to the rescue in this counting board book!

author’s comments:
Phyllis Root says she wanted One Duck Stuck to be "a north woods wetlands counting book, accurate to the marshes of Minnesota. All the animals are actually found there. I love to go canoeing and camping, and this book is a composite of my experiences."
illustrator’s comments:
Jane Chapman does all her painting in her kitchen, looking out onto the garden. "The color blue in One Duck Stuck is the exact same blue that's in my kitchen," she says. Although she has a pet tortoise named Muggs, who at age 70 is a family heirloom, one day she would like to have a duck as well.
