Audrey is bigger than she was yesterday. Now she needs a bigger house. So she tells her dad to build her one.

At the top of a tree.

It is an ideal house. It has a bathtub for snorkeling, a place to drink tea, and somewhere to hide the dirty cups.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for HAVE YOU SEEN MY DUCK? (by Janet A. Holmes and illustrated by Jonathan Bentley)"High on the cuteness scale, this will be a welcome addition to preschool collections." --SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL"Bentley's charming watercolors present the epitome of a little boy (bare feet and all) and his well-loved stuffy." --KIRKUS REVIEWS"Both the narrative and the illustrations are particularly successful at communicating the boy's feelings .... The pencil-and-watercolor illustrations have a casual, sketchy informality, with loose pencil lines adding detail and a sense of simplicity; the art reinforces the child-centeredness of the tale by never showing any adult faces." --THE BULLETIN OF THE CENTER FOR CHILDREN'S BOOKS
