suddenly, you arrive And you turn the page Duck is frustrated because he is on vacation and doesn t want any kind of bother to happen And you keep turning pages As the pages turn, some bad things do start to happen from a bird pooping on Duck s head to a crab pinching his toes Then people start to arrive and the beach gets very crowded It starts to rain and Duck says that it can t get worse, but it certainly can There could be snow Duck is out on the beach having a relaxing vacation when suddenly, you arrive And you turn the page Duck is frustrated because he is on vacation and doesn t want

and the beach gets very crowded It starts to rain and Duck says that it can t get worse, but it certainly can There could be snow Or maybe pirates Are you willing to stop turning the pages and not find out what happens next Originally published in Hebrew, this is a book that will have young readers and listeners giggling as the pages are turned Duck is such a grumpy thing from the moment the first page is turned Of course this is a trope used in one of my favorite childhood books, The Monster at the End of This Book The reaction of characters to a reader turning pages really works well The reader controls the pace of the reaction, and can delight in causing things to happen in a static book It is also a set up that works really well read aloud.Soffer s illustrations play up the humor to top effect The crowds of people who swarm the beach almost obscure Duck, the snow turns his bill blue, and the pirates, well he s not cold any Duck also has a range of emotions that he can display thanks to his expressive eyebrows that are sure to be in some sort of grimace.Funny and a great choice to share with a preschool group Appropriate for ages 3 5 This picture book proves just how important readers are to the books they are reading When Duck finally settles down for a restful vacation, his solitude is interrupted by the intrusion of a nosy reader who keeps turning the book s pages Folks start playing games right next to him, the beach gets crowded, and even the seasons change Things take a turn for the worse as if they can get any worse, and yes, they can when pirates arrive, and the poor duck finds himself in quite a predicament T This picture book proves just how important readers are to the books they are reading When Duck finally settles down for a restful
