It’s official! Duck for a Day launched yesterday, 1 May. Since I’m in Japan, which makes it difficult to serve hors d’oeuvres and sign books in Australia, it launched not so much with a quack as with a whimper, but nonetheless it should be waddling its way to libraries and bookstores near you very shortly.
… and there’s also this little guy, brought to you by my wonderful crocheting mother. He hitched a ride in my backpack in the hopes of seeing the world and has been my faithful companion over the last couple of weeks. He has a habit of sneaking into my photos and you can see him below in a variety of poses. I have no doubt you’ll be seeing more of him over the next couple of months as he travels the length and breadth of Japan with me in search of stories, ponds, and duck-friendly chocolate.
