About The Book

In his latest merry misadventure, Henry the Duck causes trouble for his mother in this energetic and hilarious picture book from beloved author Robert Quackenbush!

Henry the Duck’s mother has so many ducklings that she can’t always keep little Henry out of trouble. First, he scoots off, taking all the clean wash with him. Then he walks through wet cement, wrecks a party, and gets lost. When he wanders too close to the lion cage, will he finally heed his mother’s “Quack, Quack, Come back!” warning?
