When Wiggles the Duck was little, the children loved her and played with her all the time. Now no one notices her. Wiggles lives with the Walaces, in the backyard with her three beagle friends. When the children get home from school, they take the beagles for a walk with their mom, and sometimes their dad goes too. But they never take Wiggles.
One day while she practices barking, which sounds more like "Quarf!", she bumps the latch on the gate and it comes open. At last, an opportunity to go for a walk. When a car blares it's horn, she hurries back to her yard. But later she tells the beagles what happened, and they convince Wiggles to show them how she opened the gate, which leads to a scary adventure.
Wiggles teaches a great lesson to young children about being happy with one's self. With humor, wonderfully simple art, and a deft touch, Susann Batson has created a lovely story for young children. I certainly hope to see a lot more from this children's author.
