Summary
The deliciously suspenseful story and bubbly verse will have toddlers bouncing in their seats!

Mama Duck has a good hunch that the big brown creature waddling behind her babies is no duck. As the foxy impostor sneaks closer and closer to Mama Duck's trailing brood, little listeners will delight in shouting out his identity. Infectious rhythms and fresh, expressive watercolors liven up the pursuit, which ends when Mama Duck confronts the villain, beak to snout - and beats him at his own game.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 3-5. Story hour alert! Here's a book with a clever premise, a bouncy text, and sunny, funny pictures that can be seen across a room. Mama Duck, with ducklings waddling behind her, is showing her kiddies what's what: "That's the way to be. Do what a duck does! Do like me!" But soon Mama has an unexpected hanger-on; he has two ears that stick up a mile and a very foxy smile, but he pledges he's a duck. Then the fun really begins as Mama has him run through brambles, eat bugs, and dive into the water to prove that he is what he says. The water finally does him in; the fox almost drowns, and Mama assures her little ones that she knew all along that the fox was no duckling. The story's patina of humor comes out in Bates' delightful watercolor art, which makes each character a jovial participant in the action; even the fox is more adorable than dangerous. Supremely satisfying. Even second and third readings will be requested. --Ilene Cooper"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "A hungry fox tries to convince a duck family that he's just a "big, brown" version of one of them: " `Yes I am!' says the stranger./ It's really, really true!/ I can waddle, I can scuttle./ I can strut a little, too./ I'm a duck!/ I'm a duck!/ I'm a duck like you!" But Mama Duck exposes his ruse by putting the fox through his duck paces, making him wallow in a mud puddle, eat bugs and swim underwater. "I really always knew that was no duck," says Mama triumphantly, as the sopping, half-drowned fox finally slinks away. Hindley's (A Song of Colors) tight, percussive rhymes give the story a drumbeat momentum as the climax nears. Bates's (Just You and Me) watercolors possess a sunlit, translucent grace, yet he still reaps plenty of comedy from his characterizations whether it's Mama Duck's narrowed-eyed maternal skepticism or the fox's woeful look as he plunges into the drink. Other details, such as the fox's snout peeking out from the flower pots or piglets romping in the mud with the ducklings, keep the setting cheerful and familiar, and undercut the villain's menace.
