Traditional “Duck and Ducklings” Story by Sage Merriman Made Better in Revised Telling
Here’s a little secret: In the 7-title series of Books With No Pictures, MAMA DUCK has been one of my two favorites.
Over the weekend though, it dawned on me: how to improve it.
Not fix it.
I didn’t think it needed fixing.
But make it better in several ways of consequence to readers (not to mention ducks and ducklings).
Anyway, I’ve made the changes, which were substantial enough to comprise a “2nd Edition” of the book.
