KIRKUS REVIEW

What kind of a canard is this? It's not a hoax -- it's a duck. Well, we can't make heads or tails or pinfeathers out of it. It's all in Latin and without a trot (and without the assist of a high school graduate who has read Cicero but says ""This is much too hard"") we can only make certain visual identifications. It seems to be none other than Jemima Puddleduck. Mater eius dixit ""Non i ad aquam.""(?) Apparently from the pictures she didn't, but she seems to be waddling her way across the countryside and there's a wicked looking Vulpus and a Canus and at the end-- well- she's been a sitting duck. There are three little ones behind her. Mirabile dictu.
