From one duck to 10 dragonflies, the muddy fun never stops in Phyllis Root's chunky little board book. Young readers will giggle their way through the numbers, and by the time the duck's foot is released with a "Spluck!" counting will be a cinch. Jane Chapman's lush illustrations are full of marshy colors and muddy detail. The right side of each two-page spread shows the hapless duck earnestly waiting for liberation by its lively rescuers, while on the opposite side the featured number is printed, large and bold, over the text, and the splishers and ploppers are depicted again for easy counting. Chapman's enchanting art is also found in The Emperor's Egg, among other titles, and Root's other popular stories include Kiss the Cow!. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter
Perfect for reading aloud, this counting book not only contains bright bold illustrations but also has lots of 'clomp, clomp' and 'splish, splash,' as well as other sound effects that children will love to replicate... great fun and sure to become an instant favorite among the toddler crowd.
[A] merry counting book . . . Root's bouncy tale, aided by rousing watercolor illustrations, would be a delight even if the duck in question didn't eventually manage to fly free of 'the muggy, buggy marsh.'

I don't think the seller has a 'very good' scale of standards.
Book had an obvious and sizeable tear in the back cover that has been sellotaped. It's also well worn. Lucky it was cheap.
Slapped wrist to the seller
