READY OR NOT,
by Tony Buzzeo and Margaret Spengler
4 hand embroidered duckling finger puppets, mamma finger
puppet, alligator finger puppet that "snaps", "boater"
straw hats with colored ribbons around the base: 2 red, 1
green, 1 blue, and 1 purple.
A drawstring pouch is included.
Many will identify with this
story of doing things one's own way. Mama duck paddles
along and 3 of her babies follow behind in orderly fashion.
But, one contrary little duckling "dawdles and dreams". He
"preens and plays/dunks and dips/splashes and spins" ...always
dawdling until a crocodile appears. Bezzeo's even tempo,
upbeat text matches Spengler's illustrations which contain soft
edges, brilliant color, and a dreamy quality. A sequel to
this reassuring tale of "youthful rebellion and parental
protection" will be published soon.
