Dodsworth wants adventure. He wants to see the world. He especially wants to visit New York City. What he doesn't want is to be joined by a duck. A crazy duck. A duck that misbehaves. Unfortunately, that's exactly what he gets. Turn to page xx for a new adventure with Dodsworth!
Tim Egan is the author and illustrator of many off-beat books for children. He lives in southern California.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't miss this series! My children love the Dodsworth books. The characters are quirky and memorable, and the books have a really great sense of humor to them that is deeply appealing to children. These are definitely among our favorites. Ages 5 and up.

Editorial Reviews

"Egan keeps the hijinks low-key, preferring long pauses and slow burns to nutty slapstick...Dodsworth [is] the perfect screwball comedy foil..." PW Starred 9/10/07 Publishers Weekly, Starred"The troublemaking 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
