I enjoyed this story of two French ducks who live in Venice California, though from the cover I was afraid it was going to be a Disney Adventure. It wasn't, rather it was a lyrical and sweet fable about love and loss and carrying on. I'm not sure who the target audience for this one is, though. It's too long for the picture-book crowd, too babyish looking for the chapter-book people... I don't know who will pick it up. I do know that they will be glad they did.
