A little Blue Duck, with a passion to cook,
was busily searching her recipe book.
"I'll make a pavlova, that beaut kiwi treat,
lighter than air and perfectly sweet."
The Kiwi Corker books are still going strong, the more books i read the more impressed i am. The Little Blue Duck is a great retelling of The Little Red Hen.
The illustrations are great, you know when it's a Kiwi story with an Edmonds cook book or Chelsea sugar involved (even though it wasn't labelled, if you're a kiwi you just know these things). The pictures are a big part of the story, nice and colourful and appealing to children and adults alike.
The Little Blue Duck sure is a beaut kiwi treat, just like the pavlova that gets made.
I loved reading this book, and it is now one of my favourites. My most favourite however is Trev and The Kauri Tree, also by Chris Gurney.
