The Duck siblings hear their parents tell then to stay close and not get lost, but of course they promptly forget and wander into the woods. The forest creatures try to help by howling and growling and hooting to draw the Duck parents’ attention, but Mama and Papa Duck can only hear the cries of their own little ones.
Everything was pretty cute – up until the last page. I really thought the Ducks would at least say “Thank You” to the animals – instead they just brush the animals off. Did not like that end.
