What would you do to take care of the class duck for a day? A genuine, warm, and witty tale of determination and unlikely friendship.

Abby’s class has a duck named Max who waddles and quacks and makes your feet all warm when he sits on them. Even though Max is a duck with demands — from an ideal aquatic environment to fresh strawberries — Abby might get to take him home overnight, if she can make everything perfect. And Abby is sure she can do it. The problem is, weird Noah from next door wants to take Max home, too. Abby can hear him digging on his side of the fence, but she knows he’ll never get Max. A duck needs calm, and what can Noah do about his chaotic backyard and noisy sisters? Splashed with charming illustrations and brimming with humor and heart, this story of bestlaid plans and unexpected cooperation is one that every kid will relate to.
