The Secret Adventures of a Wild Duck
by Jordina Holland

Ducks, ducks, ducks! Many kinds of wild ducks live in Canada. This story is about one very special duck and how its life suddenly changed, when it was discovered by a young boy, whose act of kindness saved it from a sad fate. Then the duck had adventures that other wild ducks could never imagine! What would it eat? Where would it sleep? Who would it trust? How would it stay safe? Here is the never before told story of this duck's adventures while growing up and being cared for by a loving human family. Based on a true story. Illustrations in Black and White.

The Secret Adventures of a Wild Duck is a delightful early chapter book, told with the sweetness of firsthand experience, about young children who foster a wild duckling. The children’s concern and love for the baby duck is palpable. Readers will easily share the excitement but will also learn more about the care of ducks and ultimately letting go. Louise Routledge – Teacher, Mother, Guide Leader, Bird Bander The Secret Adventures of a Wild Duck is an authentic and sensitive tale of an orphan duckling’s survival with the help of four enthusiastic children and their parents. This beginning chapter book would be a delightful follow-up to a visit at a pond favoured by waterfowl. Pik-Pik, the little duckling is sure to engage the imagination of the younger set and perhaps spark the dream of finding a wild critter to rescue, care for and ultimately release to the wild. Alice Fleming, Retired Teacher Librarian
