Quackenstein Hatches a Family, Paperback / softback Book

Quackenstein Hatches a Family Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Brian Jones

Paperback / softback


A spooky and kooky tale about a lonely duck and his unexpected new friend-now in an 8 x 8 trim size and paperbackTold in rollicking rhyme, this picture book introduces Quackenstein, a lonely duck in his "lair" at the zoo.

One day, Quack is inspired to adopt an egg from the nursery and-much like his inspiration, Dr. Frankenstein-he's shocked by what emerges from the egg.

The "monster" chases him throughout the zoo in a fast-paced and funny parody of monster movies.

In the twist ending, the monster (actually an adorable platypus) and Quack resolve their differences and settle down as a not-so-spooky family
