One day while Wolf and Little Lamb are outside with their pet alligator named Omelet, a duck falls out of the sky and lands on Wolf's head. All the duck wants to do is fly, but can't do it with a hurt wing. So, Wolf and Little Lamb let the duck stay at their house. They name her Apple since she fell from an apple tree, but quickly realize they get more than they bargained for. The two friends watch over Apple and worry over her while she heals. But she won't ever fly if she doesn't try. When Little Lamb finds herself in trouble, it's up to Apple to save the day.

THE DUCK WHO CAME FOR DINNER is a story about friendship, healing and goodbyes. The text is a little jagged but paints the story along with the pictures. The illustrations are vibrant and the text stands out with its bold font. The fact that Wolf and Lamb have a pet alligator adds humor to the story and I love how it acts more like a dog. Friendship develops between unlikely creatures and it makes the story a bit more endearing. The duck acts like an errant toddler and Lamb and Wolf worry over her like a parent would.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to children aged four and up who enjoy silly stories about animals and friendship. While the ending is both sad and sweet, it fits the story perfectly.

THE DUCK WHO CAME FOR DINNER is a cute picture book about loving and letting go. Wolf, Little Lamb, and Omelet the alligator are chasing clothes that blew off their clothes line when Wolf finds a little duck that they decide to call Apple. Apple has a hurt wing and cannot fly, so she stays with them while she heals. Apple takes a lot of risks that make the others nervous, but they trust in her. When she says it is time for her to go, they say a heartfelt goodbye and hope that someday she will come back to visit.

What I loved: The illustrations were particularly fun in this one, featuring expressive animals as well as side dialogue from other creatures who appear in the scenes. The story has some very comical moments, captured well by the images throughout. The story is relatively simple and features quite the brave little duck, as well as the animals who do their best to support her.

The font is clear and easy to read throughout, with a pace that will work well for elementary school aged picture book lovers. The end of the story is bittersweet, which will appeal to some more than others, though the animals end it on a note of hope for seeing their friend again.

What left me wanting more: As a small thing, the story did not always flow smoothly, and it would have been helpful to have more transitional telling as it went on in terms of duck's healing and plans for the future. Children can generally read between the lines, however, and will get into the story regardless.

Final verdict: THE DUCK WHO CAME FOR DINNER is an overall cute picture book about friends who come and go from our lives that will work well for elementary school aged readers.

The problem most RELATIONSHIPS and MARRIAGE have may come from you or NOT. But the reason why the problem may not come from you is that relationships are not naturally secured. Whoever you are with, there will ALWAYS be another individual EX that wants to be at your place. People don’t know that before being chosen by someone, there is always an unknown competition (not generally easy for your partner) that ends up with you as a winner. However, that competition never ends up because another competitor can overthrow you at any time. When it comes to competition, not everyone is fair play!
