Mr. and Mrs. Mallard are searching for a safe place to raise their ducklings. But everywhere they look there is danger. In the woods are hungry foxes. And dangerous turtles swim in the water. So they fly on towards Boston. They hunt everywhere in the city: on Beacon Hill, around the State House, and in Louisburg Square. Finally they find the perfect place. But how will they move their eight fuzzy ducklings? Award-winning author Robert McCloskey has delighted readers for years with this classic tale of a duck family's search for the perfect home. Lively ducks waddle from the pages with John McDonough's whimsical performance. For another delightful story by Robert McCloskey try Blueberries for Sal.
