Having your birthday on February 29 is certainly not ideal. And getting only a duck egg to hatch from your dad as a birthday present doesn’t make it better for ten-­year-­old Cathy. The adventure begins when not Cathy, but her best friend Margaux, who is confined to a wheelchair, is present when the egg hatches. Whoever the duckling sees first, it regards as its mother. While the girls really want to take care of the little duckling, Margaux’s parents think it is too much responsibility for a girl with a disability. When the duckling ends up on an animal farm our two heroes set out on an adventurous journey to rescue it.

 

Parents please note: There are a few tense moments of danger for both the duckling and the girls, with a happy ending.
