Just another WordPress.com site

By: Juliette MacIver

Illustrated By: Sarah Davis

On top of Hollyhock Hill Marmaduke Duck has a marmalade shop and animals come from near and far to buy his jams and marmalades. One day Bernadette Bear turns up and declares she is going to open a honey shop right next door. When she does Marmaduke has to close his shop because no-one buys from him any more. As he leaves he finds she has pulled a dirty trick on him. He goes to confront her and a very unexpected thing happens, proving that friendship can sometimes be found in the most unexpected pf places.

A wonderful story of standing up for yourself and allowing yourself to see things from another side. The text is rhyming fun, which is so enjoyable to read out loud. The illustrations are toned perfectly to convey everything from a crowded shop to the sad lonely duck. A fun one to share.
