BC: I dedicate this book to my Darel my pet duck. 2/22/2005-7/15/2008
FC: Darel the Duckling: Who couldn't swim and didn't fit in.
1: Darel was a duckling who couldn't swim and didn't fit in. Darel didn't fit in because his feathers were different colors then the rest. Darel was very sad about the color of his feathers being different and that he couldn't swim. So Darel was going to change.
2: Darel wanted to learn how to swim. So Darel went to Gibby the Guppy to learn how to swim. Gibby was a very talented swimmer. So it didn’t take long for Darel to learn how to swim.
3: After Darel learned how to swim he wanted to change the color of his feathers. So he went to Peggy the pig to make him dirty so his feathers were darker. Peggy told him to roll in some mud. So Darel rolled in the mud until his feathers were as dark as the rest.
4: So after Darel learned how to swim and now would fit in. He went back to his family. When he got back to his family they asked why he was all dirty? So Darel said that he didn’t like not being able to swim and not fitting in, so I learned how to swim and changed the color of my feathers. His family said he didn’t have to do that to fit in, and that they love him no matter what.
5: When Darel heard this it made him very happy that his family would except him no matter what. So he cleaned himself off and hopped into the water with them. Darel and his family swam happily ever after. The End.
