Strummer, the One-of-a-Kind Duck
20 June 2019 | by pbnickelsSee all my reviews

Guy Gilchrist published a "Silly Shape Book" in 1989 titled "Strummer, the One-of-a-Kind Duck." I've always loved it and have thought it should be made into a production of some sort, and last night saw "The Sissy Duckling" on HBO. WOW! I liked it. It expanded on the theme of the small board book, but the music was sweet and the voices were great. All children should grow up knowing the lesson of these stories. Hurray for the self esteem builders!
