"Quirky new-baby storytime fun to quack readers up. Just ducky."--Kirkus Reviews
"Redheaded Stella Wells is a self-described 'fledging scientist' with a chip on her shoulder (the new sibling kind) and a hypothesis to prove: 'my baby brother might be a duck.' First-person narration by Miller (When You Are Brave) skews straightforwardly precocious, while Wiseman's (When Your Llama Needs a Haircut) round-headed cast and skillful wielding of pop-off-the-page colors (including a blazing duck yellow) exudes a cheery goodwill. However disgruntled Stella may be, her STEM skills are a model for any sibling, human or otherwise."-Publishers Weekly
"Wiseman supplies appropriately sunny cartoon illustrations (with a diverse cast that is plainly all human) to a cheery episode that fits the bill nicely for readers who relate to the young investigator in Andrea Beaty's Ada Twist, Scientist (2016) and like STEM-ware."-Booklist
"[A]musing. . . This lighthearted story is a fresh take on welcoming a new sibling. Words like hypothesis, evidence, and inconclusive are used in a natural way which helps children build vocabulary. A recommended purchase for library collections."-School Library Journal
[My Brother the Duck is] very jolly and absurdist, an original take on the new-baby 'problem' and a lighthearted introduction to the scientific method and critical thinking."-Horn Book Magazine
