'Chasing cows and pigs. Mockery. Rude songs. Piracy, bullying, revenge, warfare and general thuggery.'
This is the list of approved duck activities and it does NOT include poetry.
The ducks of Little Dismal are angry. A scruffy chicken called Clara has been telling lies about them. They need revenge.
Enter Rita - a duck with the soul of a poet. After an embarrassing talent night, Rita sees revenge on Clara as a chance to
restore her reputation.
But Rita finds more than revenge on her mission. She uncovers a dastardly plan to chook-nap the clever chicken that will
take them both a long way from home.
Luckily, it's Rita's unlikely friendship with a small human and the help of some street-smart birds that just might save the
day and inspire an epic poem!
'Jealousy, revenge, crime, adventure, duck poetry and laugh-out-loud comedy -?Rita's Revenge?has it all! I adore this
book.' Katrina Nannestad, author of The Girl, the Dog, the Writer in Rome
