KIRKUS REVIEW

The wind blows away one of Dilly Duckling’s downy feathers and she enlists the help of friends to get it back. While chasing dragonflies and blue butterflies one sunny morning, Dilly is dismayed to find that a gust of wind has blown away one of her feathers. After a dizzy chase, she first bumps into her friend, the porcupine, and then a field mouse; both try to help Dilly retrieve the elusive bit of fluff. Tired and frustrated, a resigned Dilly goes home to tell her mother, who lets her know that losing her fluffy feathers is all part of growing up. Bright acrylic paintings seem blown across the pages by the same winds that have stolen Dilly’s feather. A breezy look at the changes of growing up. (Picture book. 3-6)
