Publisher's Description

Dodsworth wanted adventure. He wanted to see the world. He especially wanted to visit New York City. What he didn’t want was to be joined by a duck. A crazy duck. A duck that misbehaves. Young readers will laugh out loud at the duck’s silly antics as Dodsworth has the unexpected adventure of his life in the Big Apple . . . and beyond.

"The troublemaking duck...is an amusing character...the matter-of-fact compact sentences gain readability as well as humor from their simplicity." Bulletin October2007 Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Known for his quirky books, Egan does himself proud here... ." Booklist 10/15/07 Booklist, ALA

"The expressive ink-and-watercolor illustrations capture the comic aspects of the text... will delight newly launched readers." SLJ November 2007 School Library Journal
