Gorbachev, Valeri

Lost and Found Ducklings

(2) K-3 Chasing a butterfly and frog leads Brother and Sister Duck into an unfamiliar part of the forest. Kindly creatures try to help by calling loudly, making the forest "a very noisy place." In Gorbachev's watercolor, gouache, and ink pictures, the woods stay in the background and the animals wear clothes; their comical reactions and expressions make this story more funny than alarming. Lots of story-hour potential here.
