Duckscares: Cooking Up Trouble Review

Duckscares…Woo-oo! Grab your passports for round 2!

The Duckscares book series is back with Duckscares: Cooking Up Trouble. This is book 2 in the adventures that take Huey, Dewey, and Louie around the world as International Student Ambassadors for the National Association of Studious and Talented Youth. The first book, “Duckscares: The Nightmare Formula”, took our favorite adventuring triplet nephews to Berlin, Germany where they helped solved a soccer-related, curse-driven mystery behind Dr. Z’s Toys and Sports Emporium. You can read my review on “Duckscares: The Nightmare Formula” here.

The Duckscares book series is written by Tommy Greenwald and illustrated by Elisa Ferrari. The series is recommended for kids in grades 3-7 and ages 8-12. “Duckscares: Cooking Up Trouble” is 216 pages in length and has a release date of November 23rd, 2021.

I received a copy of “Duckscares: Cooking Up Trouble” from our friends at Abrams Books to review for this blog.

Book Description

Huey, Dewey, and Louie are off following a recipe for disaster! Donald Duck’s nephews are back in action and heading to France!

Everyone’s favorite triplets find themselves in beautiful Paris, the city of lights! They take to the city like ducks to water, enjoying the culture, the language, and-most important- the food! France seems like the perfect destination, but when a ghoulish ghost springs up at their favorite bakery, will the boys be able to save the day? Or will the bakery have to shut down forever? And what about the cake???


Duckscares: Cooking up Trouble picks up right after the first Duckscares book left off. The Duck triplets arrive at the airport in Paris from their last stop in Berlin, Germany as International Student Ambassadors for the National Association of Studious and Talented Youth. They are staying with another great host, Monsieur Panache and his white fluffy puppy, Cornichon. The newest mystery that they needs to solve involves a bakery, La Premiere Patisserie, that gets haunted by a wicked chef phantom when a recipe book goes missing. Everyone is a suspect!

The story is an easy read and includes detailed illustrations by Elisa Ferrari on almost every page. Ferrari could also be the greatest last name ever. The pictures are great to give the readers both young and old visuals of our Duck friends and their experiences. This book would be a perfect gift to give a child this holiday season in their stocking to encourage more reading. As an adult and Disney Duck fan, I enjoyed this book and the previous book. It is always great to get more Disney Duck content. Duckscares is turning out to be an adventurous series, and I am looking forward to seeing which county the triplets will visit on their journey next.
