A Bug in a Book review by Angela Hall.

Most of us can say we have gone for a walk to the local park to feed the ducks at one time or another.  That is what Ben did, there was only one duck there on this particular occasion though, and he was a hungry duck.  He ate all the bread Ben had brought with him.  Then Ben decided to go home.  And so did duck who followed Ben home.

This story is cute and quirky (or quacky).  It is a little bit funny and a little bit fun.  Follow Ben as he first tries to elude duck, and then decides to be friends.  Some things are better enjoyed with a friend after all.

Delightful in story and pictures.
