About the Book
Willie has just gotten his first pet, Hilda, who is unlike any pet he’s ever seen. Hilda is not a dog, like his brother Danny’s pet. Hilda is a duck. One day while playing, Hilda squeezes through a hole in the neighbor’s fence, runs through the garden, and into the nearby pond. Will Willie ever get Hilda back?
