From the author of My Deal with the Universe, a lighthearted, tender story of a girl and her steadfast duck.


I spend a lot of time thinking about what Grandad said that day Webster first went missing. How if you spend too much time dwelling on the things you've lost, you might not notice what you've got in its place. And how sometimes those things can be just as wonderful. But in a different way.

In a story about love, friendship, search for identity, and the hardship of loss, LIKE A DUCK reminds us that family is what you make it...and sometimes what feels broken is actually perfectly imperfect.

"A sunny, charming book with emotional threads that run excellent book to share with an anxious kid."

-Quill & Quire, May 2021
