One would think that an auction of duck paraphernalia to benefit the Darbyfield town library would not create that much excitement. Unfortunately for heiress Alice Peavley and her brilliant gnome valet Macalley, one of the items in the auction, a golden duck figurine, is attracting far too much attention...especially from a number of villains and scoundrels. Food fights, pixie sorceresses, mad scientists, adorable yet destructive automatons - can Alice and Macalley prevail, or has doom come to Darbyfield?
