“Open these pages and you enter a mythical, magical, enchanting world where ducks can fly and fish can talk … Clare McAlaney pulls a powerful punch … Will the young, naïve duck Cheeky succeed in his pre-destined task, against all the odds …? Will he manage to overcome rival Spotty and terrifying malevolent forces and find the Manuscript, hidden centuries ago in a distant palace? Will he succeed in unlocking the ancient secrets and save Bali from its headlong, unstoppable rush to destruction, perdition and chaos? This timely, modern allegory bursts with energy in words and pictures.”
