About the book: Cat, Squirrel and Duck live together happily in their old white cabin, every day they work together to make delicious pumpkin soup. Until one fateful day when little Duck decides that he has a better idea. This is the first of three stories with the trio, all of which explore the trials and tribulations of friendship.
Reasons for selection: Helen Cooper’s classic story is both reassuring and realistic in its depiction of childhood friendship and squabbles. The luminous, rich illustration has plenty of child appeal and the characterisation invites empathy. The language has strong aural qualities, making this a good choice for developing fluency.
