Based on a news article about thousands of rubber ducks that went adrift after falling from a cargo ship, Eric Carle imagines ten of the toys briefly encountering real marine animals. And that's it.

A fine example of Carle's art, but the story is a big nothing. ( )

Ten rubber ducks are packed into a box and loaded onto a ship to go to far away countries. A big wave hits the ship and the ten rubber ducks fall overboard. They all start floating in different directions and meet different animals along the way. One of the rubber ducks actually meet a mother duck and her ducklings and follows them to their nest at night. On some of the pages the last line was repeated which kind of confused me, I didn't really understand why the author did that. I liked the illustrations in the book, they are very colorful. ( )
