Ralph is a dog who loves his quiet life.
When he happens to walk past an egg that is hatching, that life changes immediately.
The first thing the duckling that appears sees is Ralph, and soon the duckling has imprinted on the dog.
And not long afterwards, there are many more ducklings who are following Ralph.
Poor Ralph’s quiet life is no longer his own, and no longer peaceful.
What’s a dog to do, but try and be a father figure to a flock of ducks.
The trouble is, dogs are not sure about what ducks eat. And keeping the ducks clean is an adventure.
Just like human children and parents, Ralph and his ducklings live a life filled with feeding growing kids, and curiosity-filled questions.
Will Ralph ever have canine children? Will the ducklings ever connect with their duck parents?
Children and adults will enjoy the journey Ralph goes on in Duck, Duck, Dad? with Lorna Scobie‘s humourous text and illustrations full of recognisable experiences, and lots of love.
