A cautionary tale of what to do if you get lost in the big city. This is the fabulous tale of Duck, Cat and Squirrel who head to the big city to get some salt for their pumpkin soup. After spotting a pepper shop and daydreaming about how tasty it will make the soup Duck gets horribly lost. How will he ever find Cat & Squirrel? And how will they ever find him?

This book is beautifully illustrated in rich warm colours and has an inventive layout that helps to bring the story to life. There is also some commentary from two little bugs tucked away on some pages which is a nice touch. A great book to read to a Reception or year one class, especially if they are heading out on their first field trip and need a reminder of who to speak to when lost and what to do.
