In Dupasquier’s tidy little tale, young Vicki’s family gets a new next–door neighbor, Mrs. Sparks. When the newcomer brings home a duck and places it in the small pond in her yard... it quacks loudly from morning to dusk... Hatching a rather unlikely plan to solve the problem, Vicki’s father purchases his own duck, and digs a pond in their yard, musing that the quacking clamor will be unbearable and bring the neighbor around to their point of view. Yet not only does the new pet not utter a single quack, the original duck goes mute. After it becomes clear that the two canards are pining for each other, the neighbors cut down the hedge between their properties and join the two ponds.About the Author:
