'Every new little duckling at Willow Brook will feel wobbly today,’ Mummy said kindly, slipping Puddle’s bag over his wing.‘Your first day at school is a very big step.’ But Puddle wasn’t sure he could take even one…very…small…step. His feet felt stuck to the ground.’

Puddle longs to go to duckling school, but as his first day approaches he is suddenly not so sure. In this charming story Puddle’s worries turn to smiles as Mummy packs enough love and support into his school bag to take him through the day.
