Emily is a serious girl. She enjoys serious things like bird-watching, math, and playing the cello. But one day while she?s taking a walk, Emily runs into Duck, who is anything but serious . . .

?Duck,? asked Emily. ?What are you wearing??
?Socks!? yelled Duck.
?Ducks don?t wear socks,? replied Emily seriously.
?Cold feet!? yelled Duck, and off he went.

Through a series of humorous run-ins, Duck teaches Emily the importance of laughing?especially at oneself. A witty and comical debut picture book, this hilariously illustrated story will have readers laughing along with Emily.
