Friendship Water

YEAR GROUP

Years 1 and 2

A wise, funny fable about how we don't need to like the same things to find our perfect pal.

Duck is not like other ducks. Duck doesn't like water and is perfectly fine alone, thank you very much. But then, one dark and stormy night, an outgoing, water-loving, and very lost Frog turns up at Duck's door. Can this odd couple find Frog's home? And will they find friendship along the way?

This endearing, gorgeously illustrated tale marks the author-illustrator debut for Steve Small, illustrator of the highly acclaimed I'm Sticking With You.

Shortlisted for the Oscar's Book Prize 2022.
