What do you do when your life is overrun by ducks and everything gets to be just a little too much? Find out in this beautifully illustrated story about a boy and his newfound flock of aquatic friends.

One morning, Alexander wakes to find a duck waiting for him. As more ducks arrive, Alexander’s life overflows with fun and affection. All of a sudden, he has friends to eat breakfast with, play games with, and sit on the bus to school with.
However, as his new feathered friends fill the house, it becomes clear there are TOO MANY DUCKS for one small boy to handle. There’s no breakfast left for Alexander, and he can’t buy bus tickets for all of these ducks! But how will Alexander get them to leave? And what will he do when he realises how much he misses them?
Too Many Ducks is a warm and whimsical tale about appreciating what you have before it’s gone and working out how to make things right when friendship seems lost.

The author

Heidi Cooper Smith knew from the age of 11 that she wanted to write and illustrate books. Then, during a Visual Arts degree, she fell in love with Ceramics and spent the next 20 years covered in clay. She rediscovered picture books through her three small children, and in 2014 began drawing again. Six months later, Heidi was offered her first contract to illustrate Two Birds on a Wire (by Coral Vass). In 2015 and 2016 she won the CYA illustrated manuscript competition, which led to the creation of her first book as both author and illustrator, Kate and the Thing, released in 2018.
