A Paddling of Ducks

Animals in Groups from A to Z

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Loaded with visual jokes and puns, a joyous and gently surreal celebration of animals in groups, from Ants to Zebras.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 08, 2010 – This ABC book provides a delightfully offbeat introduction to collective nouns, featuring groups of animals at a Riviera-like resort locale with palm trees and a seaside Ferris wheel. An army of Ants closes in on an anteater's doughnuts (he's too busy with his laptop and coffee to notice), while a bloat of Hippos work out on exercise bikes. Even better than learning some of the unusual ways to refer to multiple animals is the way Kelly's soft-focus oil and acrylic paintings riff on the terms themselves. Thus, a gang of Elk and skulk of Foxes look appropriately rowdy, and a labor of Moles in hardhats are seen doing excavation work. The anthropomorphic animals feel anatomically authentic, but with exaggerated joie de vivre to spare. Ages 4 7.
