Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a pond so deep and chilly sat a frog upon a lily,

Catching flies the size he'd never seen before.

All at once, he started chuckling at a fluffy yellow duckling

Shaking shyly on the sand along the shore.

     And so begins the charming story of Little Chicken Duck, whose fear of water prevents her from learning to swim. Taken under Froggie's wing, she is brought into the forest clearing, where each of the birds, in turn, confesses their deepest fear and how they came to terms with it. Armed with their stories of bravery and Froggie's support, Little Chicken Duck, "feeling cheerful, brave, and plucky," is finally able to overcome her fear of water and swim in the pond.

     This heartwarming tale in rhyme is lovingly illustrated by the playful, enchanting illustrations by artist Bill Slavin.
