Harold and the Duck by Bruce Robinson


Harold and the Duck by Bruce Robinson

Finding an egg is one thing. Having it hatch in your own kitchen and turn into a very bossy duck is quite another. When Harold is faced with the prospect of having to share his hearth and home with the Duck it does not look like things are going to work too well. Just as Harold is facing defeat he is saved by an unlikely friend.
