by Virginia Wallen

A duck and chicken have babies at the same time. One of the ducks is so ugly that the mother won’t take care of it. So Lucy’s two brothers switch the ugly duckling with one of the chickens. Both mothers are upset. The duck is in the water and the mother hen can’t get him to come out. The chicken won’t go into the water and the mother duck can’t make him.

They get back where they belong but the ugly duck follows the chickens. Lucy names the duck Amanda and takes care of it. Amanda ends up rescuing the other ducks even though they wouldn’t have anything to do with her.


My husband and I are no longer able to work and we volunteer at nursing homes. I also volunteer at an elementary school. This is my third published book. The others are Sonny and Sammy and Boo Boo Bear. The children at the school have inspired me to have these books published. I think of the days when my own three girls were still at home and we had an ugly duck that stayed with our chickens. That is where I got the idea for this book.
