It chronicles the story of Hamilton, a duck who is thrown a curve by the changing of the seasons. Hamilton is bewildered to find that his beloved pond has frozen over and he even has a conversation with a fish that is trapped under the frozen layer of ice on his pond.
I loved this book growing up. It had great illustrations and a fun little story. Part of what I loved was that I associated going fishing with one set of grandparents and the storyline about the fish always made me think of them.
My mom still has a copy of the book from when I was growing up and I hope someday I can share it with my kids (whenever we’re blessed with them, of course!)
Looking around, I see there was another book featuring Hamilton Duck. Whether or not I read it or was aware of its existence before now I can’t really say.
