Before you ask—the answer is no, this story has nothing to do with the game Duck, Duck, Goose. A couple of ducks (both named Duck) are getting ready to throw a party, but Moose keeps accidently getting underfoot and messing things up. When Moose runs off, it’s up to the two ducks to go find him and bring him back to the party. This giggle-inducing book is certain to become a new family favorite!
