By Melanie Heuiser Hill

Bim, Bam, Bop . . . and Oona (Jacqueline Briggs Martin and Larry Day)Poor Oona—she’s always the last duck to the pond…. But then her frog friend Roy reminds her: you’re good with gizmos… And so Oona the duck goes to work in the barn on her gizmos, pouring her creative and determined self into getting to the pond before the faster ducks. Along the way, she learns there is more to life than just being fast and getting somewhere first.
