One Duck Stuck
A Mucky Ducky Counting Book

author: Phyllis Root
illustrator: Jane Chapman

Down by the marsh,
by the sleepy,
slimy marsh,
one duck
gets stuck in the muck . . .

Can two fish, tails going swish, help? What about three moose, munching on spruce? Bright, spirited illustrations by Jane Chapman enhance this one-of-a-kind counting tale by Phyllis Root a feast of sounds and numbers that will have listeners scrambling to join in the slippy, sloppy fun.

"Perfect for reading aloud, this counting book not only contains bright bold illustrations but also has lots of . . . sound effects that children will love to replicate." Booklist

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.
