Are you like everyone you know? Is there something about you that is different from other people? How does that make you feel?
Being different is the subject of That’s One Odd Duck! by Heather Glenn Vines. Baxter knows he is different. Anyone who looks at him can see that. He has big clumsy feet and a giant orange nose. And he waddles when he walks. No matter how hard he tries, Baxter just can’t keep up. His siblings run fast; he waddles. They meow; he quacks. Then something unexpected happens, and everything changes!
Join Baxter on an adventure of a lifetime as he waddles down the delightful path of self-discovery. Like Baxter, you’ll discover being different isn’t always a bad thing.
Heather Glenn Vines lives on Flathead Lake in Montana. Her daughter, Paige B. Torbergson, lives in Arizona. That’s One Odd Duck! is the first in a collection of stories for Little Books for Hearts and Minds.
