Excerpt

Dogsled to Dread 1 Alaskan Adventure


Miss Mallard, the world-famous ducktective, looked up at the enormous stuffed polar bear in the lounge of the hotel where she was staying.

She shivered and said to Vera and Arnold Drake, “I can’t get over the huge size of things here in Alaska. It is all so rustic and beautiful—it’s like going back to the old frontier days. Thank you so much for inviting me here.”

“We’re so glad you could come,” said Vera, who was knitting a long woolen scarf.

“As the heads of the local business group here in Duckton,” she continued, “Arnold and I have been working a long time to get you here. We were grateful you could change your plans at the last minute.”
