Clever Duck (8 page)

“I got that,” Rory said. “He's telling me I'm a good dog.”
The woman bent down and stroked Damaris's brown-and-white plumage, and she, too, spoke two words.
“What did she say to me?” asked Damaris.
“Haven't a clue,” replied Rory, as the farmer's wife said once more, “Clever duck!”
Visit a wonderfully silly nonsense world and the very unusual creatures that live there. You'll meet Wollycobble, Tumblerum, Og, and Ut as they set up house under the mishmash trees.
When a bad-tempered camel escapes from the zoo, he leaves a trail of havoc across the English countryside.
An adventurous family of mice strikes out in search of a new home and finds a completely different kind of life.
When a rampaging tyrannosaurus rex threatens the Great Plain, a pterodactyl and apatosaurus combine their unique skills to take him on in this hilarious adventure.
