by Kevin Luthardt

A kind young boy finds an egg that’s been left behind when…CRRRACK! PEEP! The newly hatched duckling follows him all the way home! These fast friends do everything together until one day, a flock of ducks flies by, and…QUACK! The boy is heartbroken when he realizes the little duckling has grown up and must return to live with the other ducks. Lonely and missing his friend, the boy finds that his heart just might be big enough for new, unexpected friendships.

Kevin Luthardt’s endearing illustrations and deceptively simple text offer a tender yet humorous tale about friendship, change, and growing up. A heartwarming introduction to picture books, Peep! promises an interactive, memorable storytime and “quacking up” fun!
