One morning, Alexander woke to find a duck waiting for him. As more ducks arrived, Alexander’s life overflowed with fun and affection.  However, as his new feathered friends filled the house, it became clear there were simply TOO MANY DUCKS for one small boy to handle. 

Too Many Ducks is a whimsical story about appreciating what you have before it’s gone, and working out how to make things right when friendship seems lost.

About the Authorstrator : Heidi Cooper Smith

Heidi knew from the age of 11 she wanted to write and illustrate books.  Then, during a Visual Arts degree, she fell in love with Ceramics and spent the next 20 years covered in clay. She rediscovered picture books through her 3 small children, and in 2014 began drawing again. Six months later Heidi was offered her first contract to illustrate ‘Two Birds on a Wire’ (by Coral Vass). In 2015 and 2016 she won the CYA illustrated manuscript competition, which led to the creation of her first book as both author and illustrator, ‘Kate and the Thing’, released in 2018. This is Heidi’s second book with Little Pink Dog Books, her first book was Six Sleepy Mice.
