Callie and George find a duck in their backyard, and soon find themselves being adopted (rather than the other way around).

Sharing Melbourne’s spirit of seriousness and silliness, The Book of Ducks is a love-letter to Melbourne, a brand new fairy tale for everyone who never got to be the main character in the old ones. It is a story about trusting yourself, finding your team (or, at the very least, your footy colours), and embracing the duck inside all of us.
