One little duck is bravely setting off on his own down the river. Behind him is a very colourful house on the riverbank. It has a green roof and a red and pink striped door with yellow handle. The walls of the house are pink with yellow circles painted on. It has four windows and two chimneys. There are three bright red flowers growing in the garden beside the house.
On the next page Mother Duck is calling her little duck home she looks worried now, she's flapping her wings, feathers are coming loose and she is jumping up and down.
This is a very happy picture. The fisherman is grinning widely from inside his red car on the bank. The purple butterfly is fluttering above the red flowers beside the pink house where two children, a boy and a girl, are looking happily out of the window at Mother Duck sitting on her nest. She is welcoming, not one, not two or three or four, but five little ducks back home.
There are no words here but there is a tiny picture of all the duck family fast asleep in their snug nest.
