NZ Booklovers ~ Inspired by a real-life furry feathered friendship, this is a fun, quirky and adorable book from the brilliant author Juliette MacIver. MacIver, of Marmaduke Duck and That’s Not A Hippopotamus fame, nails it again. Duck Goes Meow is entertaining and perfectly pitched for younger readers. MacIver is a master of rhyme and her talent at making it natural, rhythmic and not a chore for an adult reader is sublime yet again. Read the full review.
