The ducklings, Seymour and Henry, don't want to stop playing at the end of the day. It's far more fun to run away and hide. But they wait and they wait, and still Mummy doesn't come. Then, the rain starts to fall, and hiding doesn't seem nearly as much fun. So back run Seymour and Henry, to Mummy, who is waiting to take them home to bed.

Kim Lewis is an artist, author and printmaker. Born in Canada, she studied fine arts in Montreal before moving to the UK. From a series of real life farm stories (Floss, Just Like Floss, Emma's Lamb) to the imaginative world of a stuffed elephant called Harry, Kim has always tried to capture the wonders of a child's life in the countryside. She lives with her family in Northumberland.
A day of play for two brother ducklings. Seymour and Henry plop in the pond with Mommy for a swim. Then, instead of following her home, they decide - "Quack!" - to pit-a-pat away in search of mischief. They play in the tall grass and explore a log, a rock and an overturned flowerpot, in which either can fit snugly. It's only when it starts to rain that the duo decides to race home. Halfway there, they find a waiting Mommy, who lets them ride on her back the rest of the way. Although developmentally just right for toddlers beginning to experiment with independence, Mommy's sanguinity at her ducklings' explorations may seem odd for literal-minded modern grown-ups. The soft focus of Lewis's pencil crayon and chalk pastel illustrations should attract the very young. Her ducks, which resemble stuffed animals (Mommy a multihued yellow check), are inspired, though older and wiser preschoolers may wonder at their apparent waterproof properties. A gentle, appealing adventure. (Picture book. 2-5) (Kirkus Reviews)
