Chapter 1: Deirdre

Deirdre Duck should have been used to it.

After all, she had been called Deirdre Duck all her life. And all her life — well, for at least as long as she could remember — she had been teased by other children.

“Quack! Quack!” they would shout as she walked by. “Do you want some bread?”

Deirdre tried not to take any notice but it was very hard. And to make matters worse, Deirdre was dumpy and walked with a bit of a waddle, rather like a duck.
