Rate this:

When young Carrie sees Drusilla, she has to have her. But how do you care for a duckling? Carrie quickly learns the dos and don'ts of duck rearing: lots of exercise, a place to swim, and no bubblegum! Soon Drusilla is full-grown and part of the family.

But when Carrie and her parents go on vacation, Drusilla must stay behind. Duck-sitting isn't easy, though, and Drusilla is passed around until she's in the care of Garth the handyman. Garth, however, is just as handy in the kitchen, and his interest in ducks is more culinary than caring.

Arriving home, a despondent Carrie must follow the trail to her darling Drusilla. Through some headstrong heroics at the eleventh hour, Carrie saves Drusilla from a fate worse than dinner! Friendship and determination prevail in this warm tale of one lucky duck.

This funny and touching story features easy-to-read vocabulary and short chapters for emerging readers.
