Being a duck isn’t all it’s quacked up to be.

But don’t try telling that to Frank—he’s a chicken with a dream. All he thinks about are webbed feet, waterproof feathers, and the cool water of the pond. So when Frank takes a dip and nearly drowns, his mood turns foul. Luckily, he gets a little human help—in the form of a man-made wet suit and a pair of flippers—and soon he’s the speediest bird in the water. And while Frank knows he’s ruffled a few feathers, he doesn’t care—there’s just too much for him to crow about.

Until a certain young chick catches his eye, that is. . . .

From the Hardcover edition.

Seeing this, his young, human guardian Jemima Tabb enlists adult aid, and soon Frank—so dubbed for his call, which is mid-way between a cheep and a quack—is clad in a little wetsuit crafted from an old hot-water bottle, and zooming about the pond on rubber-glove flippers.
