Five is different than all the other ducklings. He doesn't quack, and he never waddles. Instead, he bounces. And bing-boings! Being different isn't always easy for Five, but boy oh boy, having an extra spring and s-t-r-e-t-c-h in his step sure comes in handy when an unwelcome (and hungry) visitor comes creeping.         Fur and feathers fly and the underduckling prevails in this hilarious barnyard yarn.

This book would be GREAT for character traits! It really shows the development of the character in the story. The duckling is different and feels isolated in the beginning until he saves the day and now understands that he loves being different! Read full review
