SUPER DUCK by Jez Alborough

superduckIn a slightly larger format than the previous titles in the series, Alborough indulges the superhero fantasies of his protagonist.  When he dons a mask and cape, Duck is convinced that he is transformed into “Super Duck”, a character whose actual extraordinary powers are not much in evidence.  The plot line—concerning a runaway kite—is not very suspenseful, but fans of the other books and fellow superhero impersonators may enjoy the breakneck pace and jaunty, rhyming text.  To me, the most phenomenal thing about Duck is his ability to sprout digits and opposable thumbs on his wingtips.
