When the little woodpecker featured in this picture book is told by his father it is time he starts pecking a tree, he embraces the task wholeheartedly. What's more. the little bird has a real knack for pecking holes in things.

Although his parent was thinking primarily of trees, the ambitious little bird tackles other wooden objects - like a fence, door, tennis racket, and even some clothing. Suddenly nothing is safe in the woodpecker family's household and holes are appearing in the most surprising places.

As you page through this book you'll have no problem finding the things that caught the woodpecker's attention; they all have little holes in them. By the time you reach the back of the book you'll find one page with over fifty holes. Someone has been very, very busy!

Lucy Cousins' sense of humor shines forth in this cute picture book about a bird who followed his father's advice a little too well. Young children love silly stories and Peck, Peck, Peck is guaranteed to elicit a few giggles.
