    This is a weird little picture book. It is about a thief who uses a duck to break open an unbreakable bank vault, but gets injured, and caught, while the duck gets away, and plans a further life of crime. It is silly, it is light hearted, and the duck loves crackers. The colors a...

    Crackerjack Jack is a colorful, fun read-aloud about safe-cracking. I like the fact that the story will lead to so many other discussions, from figurative language to morals. There is something to inquire about on every spread of the book. And, the illustrations are awesome! I know my ...

    A very successful thief comes up with a clever plan to crack into the best safe in the world?by training a duck to use firecrackers. Nothing could possibly go wrong, right? Black and white thinkers may not like that the duck gets away with the loot. But remember the book isn't sup...

    This is a cute and entertaining read for children. Yes, the duck gets away with the money and lives a life of luxury, but that is not the purpose of the book. It is a silly story with a lot of wordplay that can be used for entertainment or as a mentor text for older students learning a...
