When you're waiting for a new baby, expect the unexpected

Today is a very special day. Little Duck is expecting the arrival of her new baby brother

But Delivery Dude keeps bringing the wrong babies. First a baby mouse, then a dog, a cat, a walrus, a giraffe and finally a baby elephant. 'These babies are NOT my brother ' shouts Little Duck - but Delivery Dude insists that he never makes mistakes. Little Duck's house is filling up to the rafters when the doorbell rings again. 'NO MORE ' shouts Little Duck, but thankfully this time Delivery Dude is followed by his Stork boss, a load of very cross parents who have come to collect their babies, Little Duck's Mom and Dad... and one last very special delivery...

Kruszynski's simple but expressive illustatrations capture the anticipaton and frustration of the little duck to hilarious effect.
