About the Book

In this charming, easy-to-read story, ducklings think Pip is their Mama.

Mother Duck asks Pip to sit on her eggs for a bit. As soon as Pip sits, he hears a tap! The chicks are hatching! The chicks follow Pip, even when Mother Duck returns. Oh no! They think Pip is their mother! With charming art and a sweet, simple text, Mary Morgan tells a fun and touching story about mistaken identity, childhood adventures, and motherly love.
