A walk in town turns into a harrowing adventure for six little ducklings in this early reader, now in Spanish!

Following their mother down the street, the baby ducklings are swept up in a gush of water and washed down a storm drain. "Quack!" says their mother. "Cheep cheep!" call the babies.

Sailing through the sewer pipes, the little ducks go, as mother duck chases them from drain to drain, trying to keep them calm. When her quacks attract the attention of a kind-hearted man, the little ducks are rescued!

With warm, nostalgic watercolor paintings, Caldecott Medalist Emily Arnold McCully takes readers on a journey, chasing the little ducklings and their mother through the streets of a small town and a busier city. Perfect for young readers, this is a satisfying story of accidental adventure--with a happy ending.
