Dawdle Duckling won't follow dutifully behind Mama Duck like his three siblings do. He's too busy preening and playing, splashing and spinning, dunking and dipping . . . and always, always dreaming. But he's in for a surprise: There's a crocodile waiting for a duckling lunch to swim by. When Mama quacks a warning, suddenly Dawdle Duckling isn't such a dawdler after all!
A cheerful, reassuring tale of youthful rebellion and parental protection-perfect for Easter, Mother's Day, and every day.
Illustrated by Margaret Spengler.
