Book Description

Quirky characters, beautiful illustrations and a surprise ending make this animal story an easy and enjoyable read.

Muddle and Mo are the best of friends. Muddle is a loveable, slightly confused yet enthusiastic little duckling. Mo is a long-suffering, not very adventurous goat with lots of patience. Today, Muddle is preparing a surprise picnic for Mo. Mo doesn’t like worms, so will he like what’s in the basket?

“An engaging read-aloud; preschoolers will enjoy the pictures and absorb valuable insights into friendship and individuality.” —School Library Journal (U.S.)

“The simple but original dialogue-only text is perfect for beginning readers—they speak in clearly different typefaces—and kids will enjoy the subtle humor of this slightly wacky friendship between two such different
animals.” —Kirkus Reviews (U.S.)

“This unassuming little book is positively brimming with delight and beauty.” —Reading Time

“I love the illustrations: the goat and chicken are very cute and will appeal to the young people who read the book.” —ReadPlus
