Max the duck is cooking up an amazing soup. But what's this? A feather floating in the soup! And where's Max? Brody the dog, Dakota the cat, and Bebe the bird race about in their hilarious search for the missing Max. But remember, sometimes things just aren't as they appear.

Praise For Duck Soup

“Like the first Max story, the cartoon cover is irresistible and the comical illustrations spice up the clever story. As silly and funny as the Marx Brothers movie of the same title.”
-Kirkus Reviews

“Urbanovic creates a slapstick delight with her wildly expressive characters and expertly conveyed physical comedy. Like its best-selling predecessor, this is sure to be a read-aloud hit.”
-ALA Booklist

“Children will laugh out loud at the antics in this story.”
-School Library Journal

“Genuinely funny. Urbanovic’s vibrant watercolor and pencil illustrations are humorous and expressive. Adults looking for a readaloud choice that will really ‘quack up’ their audience will find this title just ducky.”
-Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
