Webster J. Duck
One morning Webster J. Duck's mother lays a pale blue egg in her nest. What is that, wonders Webster who has never seen an egg before. The whole mystery of eggs and ducks is explained to him by his Aunt including the fact that Webster himself arrived in just such a container as did his grandfather, his aunt, his cousin and all the rest of the family. This makes a great read aloud to young children especially in the spring as Webster proceeds to inform his cousin about the egg and then waits with the family to see what is going to happen. Humorous touches and a beautifully poignant awakening combine to make this yet another of Martin Waddell's empathetic books for young listeners. He really understands the youngest among us.
