Fun & quirky illustrated chapter book for kids aged 5+

Young animal-lovers will be delighted by Duck's Backyard by Ulrich Hub, plus an accompanying activity pack which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in February 2023.

“This delightful book, translated from German, is witty and thought-provoking with a fun twist at the end. It's also beautifully presented with colour illustrations throughout - perfect for reading together.

A duck with a wonky leg and a blind chicken set off together on an adventurous journey. They've heard there is a place where secret wishes can come true. Their quest brings exciting events, astonishing obstacles and a surprising number of things to disagree on. When they finally arrive at their destination, they learn something valuable and unexpected...

Ulrich Hub is a German writer, actor, director and screenwriter who lives in Berlin. He has written several plays for children as well as for adults. Meet at the Ark at Eight was his first novel, and has won prizes in Germany, France, The Netherlands and Italy. Duck's Backyard is his second novel, and was selected for the White Ravens Award in 2022.

The activity pack includes book club-style questions to ponder, facts about egg-laying animals and a recipe for fun duck cupcakes, alongside jokes and further reading recommendations. There's also a logic puzzle to solve, a drawing activity and a hatching egg craft project to enjoy!

Activity packs are a handy A5 size and printed on uncoated paper which is fully recyclable.
