A humorous and ironic look at building friendship on your own terms.
Duck and Penguin are not friends, despite what Betty and Maud might have you think. They do not want to swing together, build sandcastles together, and they certainly do not want to play baby dolls together! Friendship is a choice, and being forced to play with someone you haven’t chosen isn’t always fun. Duck and Penguin will let you know when they’re ready to be friends, thank-you-very-much.
