When these ducks go to the pond, it is Bim, Bam, Bop . . . and Oona, always last. Spunky Oona will inspire and delight all who see her final triumphant creation. A tale about being true to yourself, building confidence, and finding friendship, Bim, Bam, Bop . . . and Oona is sure to bring smiles to readers and listeners of all ages.


"A tale to encourage young readers to find and follow their gifts, the story of Oona is also one of friendship and courage. It’s filled with literary devices, including simile, metaphor, and a bit of alliteration accompanies detailed, full-page spreads in pen and watercolor."—School Library Journal


"Budding engineers of any species will agree that Oona has well earned the right to feel ‘just as big as a duck should feel.’"—Kirkus Reviews


"Spectacular."—Star Tribune
