Frank is a funny chick. Unlike all his brothers and sisters, he wants to dabble about in the lovely duckpond, splashing himself with water. Most of all, he wants to learn to swim. Can Jemima, the farmer's daughter, find a way to help Frank? And if Frank can swim like a duck, what will happen when he grows up to be a cockerel?

Reader's Reviews


It was very funny. I liked it a lot. His wetsuit and flippers were really funny. You wonder what's going to happen at the end. You want to read on. If you like Dick King-Smith then you'll like this. (Olivia Age 13)
