Welcome to Marrduck, an ordinary looking garden pond where magic happens. Find out who and what live in and around the pond and the fantastic adventures they have. Travel through their journey with them and discover fabulous interesting facts about things that live above and below the water. Who is Taddy and what does he do? What do the children do to help the wee beasties and the environment? As you travel on the journey with the children, you will learn fascinating aspects of pond life and the role of each wee beastie. Tales of Marrduck will inspire children’s imagination and creativity as they read the story and colour in the lovely illustrations. It provides opportunities for initiating conversation around conservation issues both at home and at school. What can you do to help Taddy and his friends on their quest to save the local environment? Oh, and which way does your watch go?
