Book Signing: Quackers Wants to Fly

December 7 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Meet author Susan Wolff, who hopes to encourage children to spread their wings and try new things with this adventurous story.

Quackers the Duck has a problem and he doesn't know what to do. He waddles off to ask his friends at the pond for help. Join Quackers, Gertrude the Goose, Dena the Dragonfly, Ollie the Owl and Clementine the Duck, on an adventure of  friendship, patience and fun.  

When Susan was an elementary school teacher, she'd would take a little stuffed toy duck to school. Her students named the duck “Quackers.” Quackers became a fixture in the classroom. He would sit on students’ desks, watching and listening. Quackers loved to sit on a ledge during reading time, listening to the stories the children wrote and read aloud. Every day the classroom had “Ask Quackers Anything” time. One student raised her hand and suggested Susan write a story about Quackers and his adventures. So she did.

Quackers is the first in the series of books, Friends at the Pond, by Susan Wolff.
