Description
The creator of Gator presents an enchanting follow-up about a carousel animal who longs to fly and a love that is bigger than the skies.
Duck is a carousel animal who spends her days watching flocks of real, flying ducks and her nights dreaming of soaring among them. Flying is all she can think about, until the day a lost little duckling waddles into her life. Soon Duck and Duckling are inseparable: they walk together, play together, even dream of flying together. Then the time comes when Duckling's yellow fuzz is replaced by long white feathers, and Duck is determined to do whatever it takes to help him learn to fly. But what if helping Duckling find his wings means being left behind?
