A simple, yet hilarious, story about manners and friendship which gets more and more ridiculous with every turn of the page!

The hilarious follow-up title to How Rude! which introduced us to the wonderful duo, Dot and Duck. They're back to share even more giggles in this sweet story about sharing, manners and friendship.

One day Dot and Duck find a stick, only Dot thinks its a sword and Duck thinks its a flag. When Dot refuses to share the new toy, she goes to any lengths to make sure Duck doesn't try to take it. How will Duck react to such selfish behaviour? Simple, funny, and ultimately touching, this book will appeal to any child who is learning what it means to share and, more importantly, what it is to be a true friend.

Bright and colourful illustrations accompany this fun and easy to read story, which will bring a smile to the faces young children time and time again.
