Age 3+ Muddle is a loveable, slightly confused yet enthusiastic little duckling who asks lots and lots of questions. Mo is a long-suffering, not very adventurous white goat who has lots of patience. They are best friends, but Muddle is rather confused about what type of animals they both are. Fortunately, during the course of their walk together Mo helps Muddle get his duck identity sorted out. Muddle Mo was reviewed by Dymocks as one of 3 best kids books for the month of May! "Set on a textural background of compressed cardboard, Muddle and Mo are simply and expressively painted. With simple brush strokes, we see Muddle's beak opened wide to state his ideas about wings or be surprised about the different kinds of beaks. This is an easy to read story, a simple tale of two animals' friendship and a search for identity." - Reviewed by Rhyllis Bignell at ReadPlus Children's books: Stephen Romei's picks the best of the bunch and includes Muddle Mo, Two Unhappy Fish, The Moving House, The Cowardly Lion and The Pear Violin in his list.
