Mother Duck sits on her nest, For her eggs she does her best. Ducklings hatch - what a lot! Five are yellow...one is not. No golden feathers trim and neat. He is scruffy, with big feet. The ducklings tease him. Go away. We think you're ugly, they all say. What happens to this poor, sad bird? This book will show you, in pictures and words.
