Duckworth, the Difficult Child

Out of stock
Duckworth is a difficult child.

At least that’s what his parents think.

So when Duckworth tries to explain that a gigantic snake slithered out of his closet,
his parents insist it’s all in his head—he is far too old to be imagining such nonsense.
(And will he please do his chores?) But even when the cobra slides right up and
swallows Duckworth whole, his parents remain unconvinced! (Where did he find that
snake costume, and will he please put it away?)

What’s poor Duckworth to do when his parents just won’t listen? With nods to the
deliciously dark humor of Edward Gorey, Florence Parry Heide, and Jon Klassen,
Michael Sussman and Júlia Sardà empathize with children everywhere who must find
ways to deal with their difficult parents.

Full-color illustrations rendered digitally.
