Product description

There are lots of birds living by the lake in Poppy’s garden but Archie, a chick hatched by a mallard duck, can’t find anyone who looks like him. Poppy feels sorry for the little chick, especially as she doesn’t like her new life in the country – she can imagine how lonely Archie feels. And yet when disaster strikes the lake it’s Archie who comes to the rescue!

Another heart-warming animal story by the bestselling author Sylvia Green.
