Duck and Penguin are NOT Friends
by Julia Woolf
Betty and Maud are best friends. The girls love to spend time together and always include their favorite soft toy animals. Betty brings her squishy yellow Duck. Maud has her huggable snuggable Penguin.
Because the girls are so fond of one another, they assume that Duck and Penguin share similar feelings.
Not so. Not so at all.
While the girls are having fun, Duck and Penguin are engaged in minor warfare: stomping on sand creations, hurling eggs, tagging with copious amounts of paint.
Betty and Maud are oblivious to their stuffed animals’ animosity, exclaiming, "They love each other so much."
The end papers featuring Duck and Penguin playing together are a bonus.
