It's a great little story

We loved the ducks and the acting of the crying Mummy. It was funny what happened to the family. It's good but maybe not our favourite Roald Dahl - haha

Lovely short story.

My daughter wished it was longer but it's still a great tale and Kate does a good job with the narration.

Under rated Roald Dahl classic, must listen.

I remember reading this book in school, I don't know why I always have been fixed by this story.

Then many years later I could not find the book again, but now I found it.
