Staff Reviews


Kids love this book at story time! Maybe that's because the book is super funny, lighthearted, and something you can read over and over. Zany ducks (and duck vendors), one ridiculous plot, and sugar-sweet graphics make this one an inevitable classic.

— From What Bartas is Reading

Praise For…


Praise for Truck Full of Ducks, by Ross Burach:

"Burach will have readers quacking up, both with the frequent repetition of the title -- 'Did you call for a truck full of ducks?' is a funny line no matter how often it's read or heard -- and over the illustrations... Sight gags and side comments in the pictures add further yuks to this ducky delight." -- Booklist

"Children will delight in the extreme silliness of this story and will repeatedly pore over the detailed, colorful, and quirky illustrations." -- School Library Journal

"Burach tells his story entirely through dialogue, packing it -- and his exuberant, crayon-like digital illustrations -- with visual jokes [and] an abundance of funny details to discover in each scene." -- Publishers Weekly

"Silly details decorate every spread... Storytime audiences will quack up." -- Kirkus Reviews
Praise for Billy Bloo Is Stuck in Goo, illustrated by Ross Burach:

2018 CBC Children's & Teen Choice Book Awards Finalist

"Begs to be read aloud... Gleeful, errant nonsense." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Plenty to linger (and laugh) over." -- Publishers Weekly

"Lots of giggles and goo, and weird characters too, in this rhyming cumulative storytime read-aloud, make this title a must-have for picture book collections." -- School Library Journal
