Dot and Duck are back! This time, the charming comedy double act are off on holiday together.
Dot and Duck are best friends, but Dot hates mess and Duck hates tidy. Duck leaves the bed unmade, the cupboards open and breakfast everywhere. How messy! In the morning, Duck makes Dot pancakes for breakfast, how kind! But Duck leaves a BIG mess!
At the beach, Dot carefully lays out her towel and picnic... and Duck digs a big hole covering everything with sand! SO messy! Characterful watercolour illustrations bring this story to life, and big font makes the story easy for young readers.
How Messy! is a simple yet hilarious story with a touching ending and an important message about accepting differences and learning to compromise.
