“Fresh from their adventures in Paris, world travelers Dodsworth and the duck arrive in the Queen's City by way of hot air balloon. Once again, trouble finds the traveling companions, and Scotland Yard is called to help. This third installment will tickle the funny bone of young readers with its twists and turns.”

Description

Dodsworth and his duck have just arrived
in London via hot air balloon.
There is so much to see!
Double-decker buses!
Palaces!
Fog!

But a crowded bus stop leads to a hilarious case of
mistaken identity and . . . a lost duck.
Time to call in Scotland Yard?

Praise For Dodsworth in London

"Straight-man Dodsworth and his skylarking duck travel to foggy London in Egan's third gentle comedy of errors. Short chapters and dryly funny narration move the story along, amusing mishap to mishap...Accessible storytelling and likable characters warrant repeat readings."--Publishers Weekly

"In this short chapter book, Dodsworth and his friend, a duck, continue their travels, this time arriving in London via hot-air balloon...The charming drawings, which include a menagerie of supporting characters and famous London landmarks, are drawn in muted colors and have a 1940s feel. For a retro read, pair this with Miroslav Sasek’s This Is London "--School Library Journal
