Mr. and Mrs. Mallard are searching for a safe place to raise their ducklings. But everywhere they look there is danger. In the woods are hungry foxes. And dangerous turtles swim in the water. So they fly on towards Boston. They hunt everywhere in the city: on Beacon Hill, around the State House, and in Louisburg Square. Finally they find the perfect place. But how will they move their eight fuzzy ducklings? Award–winning author Robert McCloskey has delighted readers for years with this classic tale of a duck family’s search for the perfect home. Lively ducks waddle from the pages with John McDonough’s whimsical performance.

About the Author
Author Robert McCloskey

Robert McCloskey (1914–2003) wrote and illustrated some of the most honored and enduring children’s books ever published. He grew up in Hamilton, Ohio, and spent time in Boston, New York, and ultimately Maine, where he and his wife raised their two daughters. The first ever two-time Caldecott Medal winner, for Make Way for Ducklings and Time of Wonder, McCloskey was also awarded Caldecott Honors for Blueberries for Sal, One Morning in Maine, and Journey Cake, Ho! by Ruth Sawyer. He was declared a Living Legend by the Library of Congress in 2000. You can see some of his best-loved characters immortalized as statues in Boston’s Public Garden and Lentil Park in Hamilton, Ohio.
