Mr. Duck enjoys a quiet morning routine on his private pond every day until other animals mistakenly think he has invited them to join him, in a simple tale that illustrates the importance of friendship.
Mr. Duck is used to a quiet peaceful life—and he quite enjoys it. Until one morning when some friendly animals invade his pond. With his once peaceful puddle in an uproar, he responds the same and shoos the animals away only to discover that maybe he could use a little more noise in his life; even if it is a little more structured than before.
