About the Book

Being a duck isn't all it's quacked up to be. But don't try telling that to Frank--he's a chicken with a dream. All he thinks about are webbed feet, waterproof feathers, and the cool water of the pond. So when Frank takes a dip and nearly drowns, his mood turns foul. Luckily, he gets a little human help--in the form of a man-made wet suit and a pair of flippers--and soon he's the speediest bird in the water. And while Frank knows he's ruffled a few feathers, he doesn't care--there's just too much for him to crow about. Until a certain young chick catches his eye, that is. . . .From the Hardcover edition.
