Charmingly written and gorgeously illustrated, this book ... is a delight...Sarah Davis’ illustrations compliment the text perfectly and bring to life the pace and humour of the story. The characters seem to leap off the page and gallop around your living room
— Alana Hawke, Kiwi Families
Sarah Davis ...is a gifted illustrator who uses her skills capture the energy and movement of the text, the personality she imbues in each creature giving visual readers much to chuckle about. An utter delight – but be prepared for multiple readings!

The fun and fantastic verses by Juliette McIver are always impressive and great to read. While Sarah Davis’s illustrations are just gorgeous.

Destined to be a favourite.
— Ang Hall, BugInaBook
Juliette’s rhyming text is a joy to read and makes the story bounce along... Sarah has the amazing gift of being able to portray animals that look life-like while at the same time having human expressions (just have a look at the front cover to see what I mean). Every page glows with the brightly coloured animals and their crazy antics.

Another rollicking Marmaduke Duck adventure in which Marmaduke sets off to sea!

A thrilling salty tale that will make you swash your buckle, shiver your timbers, and if you're anything like the seasick llama, lose your breakfast. No other book contains not one, not two, but FIFTY SIX marmoset monkey pirates, I promise you. Go on, count them! You know you want to...

The illustrations for Marmaduke Duck on the Wide Blue Sea were created with gouache and prismacolor pencil.

The whimsical illustrations are a delight and combine with the words to create a truly enchanting picture book...This is one tale in which the illustrations go above and beyond the narrative...Sarah Davis creates all her characters with loving care, including the individual marmosets (there is even a credit at the back to her “Monkey Pirate Fashion Consultant”) who all have their own unique traits.
