Quackenstein Hatches a Family is a spooky and kooky tale about a lonely duck and his unexpected new friend, from author Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen and illustrator Brian T. Jones. Told in rollicking rhyme, this picture book introduces Quackenstein, a lonely duck in his “lair” at the zoo. One day, Quack is inspired to adopt an egg from the nursery and—much like his inspiration, Dr. Frankenstein—he’s shocked by what emerges from the egg. The “monster” chases him throughout the zoo in a fast-paced and funny parody of monster movies. In the twist ending, the monster (actually an adorable platypus) and Quack resolve their differences and settle down as a not-so-spooky family. Includes stickers
