Little Quack's New Friend

Illustrated by Derek Anderson

About The Book

Widdle, Waddle, Piddle, Puddle, and Little Quack think there's nothing more fun than playing with one another. But one day a new creature splunks into their pond.

HE RIBBITS, HE LEAPS, AND HE'S GREEN!

At first Little Quack is shy. But pretty soon he just might be quacking AND ribbiting a new tune: MAKING NEW FRIENDS RULES!

With rhythm and spirit, acclaimed author Lauren Thompson sails a key lesson about growing up, in Derek Anderson's splendidly illustrated pond.
