'An egg was rolling on the ground. It rolled through the trees. It rolled across the meadow. It rolled all the way down the hill. Finally it rolled right into a duck's nest. Mother Duck didn't notice. She was reading.' Raised from an egg by Mother Duck, Guji Guji is quite content with his life as a duckling, despite the fact that he doesn't look anything like his brothers. Then he meets three nasty crocodiles who not only convince him that he is one of them, but also try to persuade him to deliver his duck relatives for their dinner. Beautifully illustrated in watercolour and ink, this New York Times Bestseller is the story of a befuddled 'crocoduck' who comes to appreciate families and differences.
