Frank is a funny chick. Unlike all his brothers and sisters, he wants to dabble about in the lovely duck pond, splashing himself with water. Most of all, he wants to learn to swim. Can Jemima, the farmer’s daughter, find a way to help Frank?
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.

We love the Dick King-Smith books we've heard/read before. This one is perfect as we needed to break up a 7 hour car drive. The story is funny, cute, and engaging. Our 7 and 9 year olds loved it.
