Description

Muriel the duck pulls on her favorite red sweater and hurries all over town to deliver invitations to her birthday party. She?s so busy she never notices the funny things happening around her...like the fact that her sweater is shrinking...and what?s that trailing after her? By the time she returns home, her sweater has disappeared, and all her friends have found good uses for nice bright red yarn!

Luckily, the daffy duck?s friends arrive just in time with the perfect gift?a new sweater! This deliciously illustrated charmer will entrance sharp-eyed young readers with clever details and fun, tonguein- cheek humor.
