Little Duck's Bicycle Ride

Dorothy Stott, Author Dutton Books $10.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-525-44728-3
This sequel to Too Much presents more misadventures of Little Duck. On alternate spreads, the energetic fellow looks as though he's perfectly under control, but a turn of the page shows this isn't the case. Slow uphill pedaling is followed by a feather-raising downhill run; a leisurely ride through the cornfield ends in chaos; and a peaceful trip over a footbridge turns into a flight through the air when Little Duck tries to avoid hitting a turtle. Finally, the spunky duck abandons his bike and dives into the water--much safer terrain for a calamity-prone duckling. The book's minimal, large-print text makes this a good pick for beginning readers, who will enjoy filling in the blanks on Stott's wordless spreads.Chances are ``Oh, no!'' will be a common utterance as youngsters see Little Duck heading for yet another entertaining mishap. Ages 2-5. (May)
