" Luthardt] invests every scene with a visual and emotional depth that draws in the audience." ―Publishers Weekly
PEEP A baby duckling hatches out of its egg and attaches itself to the first thing it sees--a young boy. He follows the boy home, and soon the two are inseparable. But the duckling is growing up. And one day...QUACK A flock of ducks flies by, and the boy realizes with a great pang of sorrow that his friend will have to return to live among its own kind. A heartwarming twist ending adds to the delight.
Kevin Luthardt's deceptively simple story features charming, colorful illustrations along with humor, emotion, and limited text to tell a special tale of friendship, change, and the importance of learning to let go of something you love.
