Inspired by a true story, this "New York Times"-bestselling, interactive picture book by beloved author/illustrator Eric Carle is now available in a board book edition. Full color.
From the Publisher:
Based on a true story, an amusing tale tells about ten rubber ducks who, after being tossed overboard a ship during a storm, find themselves floating alone on the high seas--reaching lands and meeting people far away from their original destination.
Annotation:
Ten little yellow rubber ducks head in ten different directions in this charming counting book inspired by a real-life toy shipment gone array. From the factory, where sparkling blue eyes and striking red bills are painted on, the duckies take up residence on a ship that will sail them to distant ports, ending up with an unexpected dip into the sea: "10 rubber ducks overboard!" Each heads in a different direction, encountering many sea creatures, but one finds a special family to join. In Eric Carle's legendary (and delightful) multimedia collage style. A 2005 School Library Journal Best Book.
Author Bio
Eric Carle
American-born Eric Carle and his German-born parents moved to Germany in 1935. The transition from life in American to life in Germany was not an easy one for Carle to make. His school days were unpleasant, except for the encouragement he received in his art classes. In 1952, at age 22, Carle returned to the United States. He soon began working for the New York Times and remained there until he was drafted into the U.S. Army, which sent him back to Germany. After his discharge he returned to the U.S., this time with a wife, Dorothy. He illustrated his first book for children, Bill Martin's BROWN BEAR, BROWN BEAR, WHAT DO YOU SEE? in 1967. Carle is best known for his "Very" series, which he writes and illustrates. The series began in 1969 with THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR and apparently concludes with 1995's THE VERY LONELY FIREFLY. In 2003 he was honored by the American Library Association with their Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, which recognizes creators of children's books whose body of work represents a significant contribution to the field of children's literature.

Praise

Publishers Weekly
"Carle's jaunty rendering of these creatures and use of crisp verbs make this a lively journey...." 1/24/05

Kirkus online
"Audiences of one or many will enjoy it, especially if they get to press the duck and make him squeak." 02/01/2005
