Author(s): Janet A. Holmes
"This is Duck. Duck lives at my house. Duck thinks I'm the greatest. I'm Duck's hero." The narrator of this story assumes that Duck both loves and needs him. But when Duck goes missing, things like playing in the bath and story time lose their appeal. Great is the relief when Duck is discovered under a cushion - but even greater is the discovery that the narrator needs Duck just as much as Duck needs him.
