Drake's Pond is a lovely story about Drake, Misty, and their three ducklings that live in a beautiful park with two ponds in Whitewright, Texas. Drake is the ruler of the park. There are lots of other animals that live in the park and all around the park. Texas, a German Shepherd dog, is a war hero that lives across the street from the park. Texas becomes a hero once again by saving the ducks from a wolf, a giant python snake that escapes, and many other events that happen at the park. An activity game is at the end.
