Duck’s Backyard

Ulrich Hub & Jörg Mühle

A very funny illustrated chapter book by a bestselling author/illustrator pair about courage, true friendship and our most secret wishes, in which a duck with a limp takes a blind chicken on a goose chase, as they search for adventure and answers to some big questions.

A duck spends her days limping around her backyard with the help of a crutch until one day a blind hen stumbles in, lost, and persuades the duck to embark on an adventurous journey. The duck will guide the hen; the hen will steady the duck’s wonky leg.

They leave together for a place where their most secret wishes will come true. The pair come upon astonishing obstacles along the way - a wild forest, a cavernous gorge and many differences of opinion. The hen starts to wish she’d taken a guide dog rather than a duck!

When the two finally arrive at their destination after all the hardships, they realize that their own backyard plus a little imagination offers as much adventure as a whole world.
