Story and songs by Connie Kaldor Illustrated by Fil & Julie Performed by Inés Canepa
A story about a little duck with a big dream and his lonesome journey to New York City in hopes of bringing his ducky dance to the Broadway stage. Along the way, issues of courage, self-esteem, friendship and encouragement are addressed. There’s a strong urge to cheer on this little guy in this never-give-up-on-your dreams narrative. The CD includes 12 happy-go-lucky songs such as “Couac, couac, couac” and “J’adore les tomates.” Quirky and fun artwork adds to the book’s jovial tone.
