Booklist Review

Ages 3-5. Daisy, the adorable little duck introduced in Come Along, Daisy! (1998) makes her sixth appearance, and this time she's making lots of noise. Daisy and her baby brother, Pip, scare the mice, splash the fish, and pop a balloon. Their Aunt Lily, whom the ducklings and their mama are visiting, takes them to the lake, where other ducks are making so much noise that Daisy's quack is just one of many. But when Daisy can't find Mama, Daisy lets out a squawk so loud that everyone else falls quiet, and a mother-child reunion ensues. Although the text is slightly confusing (it's not clear at first that Mamma is along for the visit), the artwork is some of Simmons' best. Daisy, brought to life in bold strokes, is surrounded by lots of ducks, all individualized and seen from unexpected perspectives. Simmons varies her format in interesting and unusual ways--sometimes the pictures fill up the pages, at other times, they appear in panels or as spot art. Into everything is curious Daisy, in whom children will see themselves. --Ilene Cooper


Publisher's Weekly Review

Everything is just ducky when Auntie Lily brings Daisy Duck and her baby brother, Pip, to the feeding pond. "Now we can make as much noise as we like." Yet when a feathered crowd descends, and they attempt to reunite with Mama Duck, the duo's cries are drowned out in Quack, Daisy, QUACK! by Jane Simmons. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-In this latest adventure, the yellow duckling and her little brother go with their mother to Auntie Lily's where there are many rousing diversions. While the adults visit, the youngsters make a lot of noise chasing the bees, the birds, the mice, the fish, and even a balloon until they've used up all their entertainment. Auntie Lily then takes them to a crowded duck pond where the little ones can be as noisy as they want to be. Daisy and Pip race for the chunks of bread, but get lost in the crowd. Readers will sit on the edge of their seats when Daisy searches for her mother to no avail. Fortunately, she manages to call "Mamma" above the deafening din, and all is well. The bright, bold illustrations are amusing and as engaging as always. Daisy runs about eagerly with skinny neck stretched forward, big feet flapping. Another ducky delight.-Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
