Mrs. Mallard was sure that the pond in the Boston Public Gardens would be a perfect place for her and her eight ducklings to live. The problem was how to get them there through the busy streets of Boston. But with a little help from the Boston police, Mrs. Mallard and Jack, Kack, Lack, Nack, Ouack, Pack, and Quack arive safely at their new home.
This brilliantly illustrated, amusingly observed tale of Mallards on the move has won the hearts of generations of readers. Awarded the
Caldecott Medal for the most distinguished American picture book for children in 1941, it has since become a favorite of millions.

This book is absolutely wonderful and is a favorite from my childhood! Robert McCloskey's award-winning, signature illustration style is beautifully detailed and charming, and beautifully tells the heart-warming story of the duck family with their adorable ducklings... whose names just trip off the tongue!
