My Brother the Duck


A fun new story about adjusting to a new baby brother whose sister believes he’s a duck and can prove it using the scientific method! 

Stella Wells is a fledgling scientist, and she knows all about the scientific method. With a discerning mind, she makes an observation about her brand new baby brother, and a story unfolds in “My Brother The Duck.” Even before he arrives at home, Stella gets some clues that her brother might not be a normal human.

“Dad told Mom: ‘You’re waddling. We must be having a duck.’ They laughed. I didn’t. A baby was bad enough. A duck was unacceptable. Research was obviously required.”
