Tibby and Duckie {Review & Giveaway}

Happy new year to my dear readers! To kickstart the year 2015, I’ve lined up some book giveaways for the month of January! (Do check back every Monday in January!)

We start the string of giveaways with Emily Lim’s Tibby and Duckie!

We actually received an autographed copy of Tibby and Duckie in December but as you know, school holidays are very precious to us so I normally blog less, especially since we were away for half the time this time on a family holiday so hence this very late review.

Anyway, Tibby and Duckie features Tibby the Tiger-Bunny and his new friend Duckie whom he rescues from the pond (Click the link if you’ve never read the previous book for a quick book review).

Duckie is a duck who’s “not the swimming kind” while Tibby the Tiger-Bunny swims “like a tiger” and hops “like a bunny”. I mean it makes perfect sense for a bunny with tiger stripes to accept a duck who can’t swim for who he is.

But more than that, he helps his new friend in this swimming feat, brainstorming various ways which might increase Duckie’s chances of swimming or learning to swim.

Eventually when they run out of ideas, Duckie admits that perhaps he’s not a “water-kind-of-duck”. Tibby then continues to explore Duckie’s abilities with him without any word of judgment, like a true friend.

Eventually through their explorations via friendly competitions and what with a dash of luck, Duckie discovers her ability. I shall leave you in suspense and you can get a copy of the book yourself to find out.

I really like this book for several reasons-

  • accept yourself for who you are
  • if you do not possess the pre-conceived ability/quality you should have, it is not the end of the world – you instead work towards discovering your true potential
  • true friends will not judge you but will be with you on your journey of self-discovery

If you like how this book sounds already, then I’d recommend that you get a copy of this book and support a talented local writer. You should of course have a go at this giveaway first! To enter the giveaway, simply follow the steps in the Rafflecopter widget.
