On Duck Pond is the first sequel to the acclaimed On Bird Hill, which launched the childrens picture book series written for the esteemed Cornell Lab of Ornithology, the world authority on birds. In On Bird Hill, Yolen and Marstall took readers on a surreal journey with a boy and his dog, as they stopped, looked, and noticed things along their path, ultimately discovering the miracle of the birth of a baby bird. On Duck Pond continues the journey of the boy and dog story, this time in a new place, a serene pond, filled with birds, frogs, turtles and other creatures going about their quiet business. Their intrusion stirs the pond into a cacophony of activity, reaching climactic chaos, before slowly settling back to its quiet equilibrium.
