A duck suffers the loneliness of abandonment before he is befriended by a little boy who returns him to his family.

As much as I enjoyed listening to this in audio format, with my granddaughters, it would have been FAR more engaging for them to see the illustrations that accompanied the story.
This was a ghost from my childhood - Captain Kangaroo days - I hadn't even remembered the title but the thought of that poor duck being the last one on the boat and getting spanked left an impression on my 5 year old self apparently. My granddaughter (6) seemed to agree. =)
Good voice for this story.
