The Adventures Of Knobby And Maddie Duck


A story about Knobby and Maddie Duck, and their proud Muscovy Duck family and friends. They live at Little Lake, one of many small lakes and have never seen a bigger lake until Knobby takes a trip to the Never Ending Sea, which is the Gulf of Mexico. He comes back to Little Lake and tells Maddie about this wonderful sight. He is very excited and wants Maddie to see this great lake. They meet up with some scary other birds on their way. They arrive safely, but soon discover that there is a Hurricane coming....they find shelter with the help of an old Muscovy relative. Then there is Little Missy Duck who was left behind by her duck family because she didn't know how to fly. She was very sad and left alone in the middle of Little Lake. Knobby and Maddie heard her sad tale - then decided to teach her how to fly. She practiced very hard every day, flapping her wings over and over, the way Knobby and Maddie told her to do. She finally found herself up above the water and was so surprised that she fell down in a big splash. She knew then just what to do to fly up in the air, and just in time too because the mean bunch of ducks were headed her way. They came every day just to taunt and tease her because she couldn't fly. As they came closer she suddenly began flapping her wings very fast and slowly flew up into the air. Her tormenters were so surprised, they just watched in awe as she flew away heading for the invisible trail that would lead her to her family. There is Redneck, who gets his name from having his neck in a constant state of redness from other ducks pecking his neck when he's being pesty and to put him in his place. There is Baby Duck, who befriends an alligator. Who everyone thinks he is mean, but Baby discovers that he is just lonesome and wants to make friends, but whenever he shows up - all the ducks run away. Baby names him Albert and to everyone's amazement - Baby jumps on Albert's back and he takes her for a ride. There is Limpy, who only has one leg. When he was little, he never listened to Mother or Father Duck and would go off on his own - no matter how dangerous. One day he swam close to where the Mean Old Alligator was always seen......and The Mean Old Alligator bit off his foot. After that, he had to hop around, but he could still fly like the wind.
