Publisher’s Description:

Five is different than all the other ducklings. He doesn’t quack, and he never waddles. Instead, he bounces. And bing-boings! Being different isn’t always easy for Five, but boy oh boy, having an extra spring and s-t-r-e-t-c-h in his step sure comes in handy when an unwelcome (and hungry) visitor comes creeping.
