Sklansky, Amy E. and Tiphanie Beeke, Ill. The Duck Who Played the Kazoo. PICTURE BOOK, Clarion, 2008. In this rhyming story a duck is left alone after a hurricane with nothing but a kazoo to keep him company. He plays solitary songs each day with the recurring refrain, "zu zu." As the season changes and the days shorten, he packs his things and flies south to a river and some fellow ducks. He plays his kazoo for them and is invited to join their "fine-feathered crew." Again the season begins to change, so our kazoo duck invites his new fellows to visit his former home. Rhyming and refrain give the story rhythm and continuity, and I love the illustrations, though the message is nebulous. EL (PreK-1) ADVISABLE - Beverly Stout, Area Library Media Specialist.
