Duck wants a job.

All his friends work in big city banks, and they never stop going on about how much they love it. Duck doesn't think a job in a big city bank sounds very exciting, but he picks one out of the paper, gets an interview, and gets the job.

It's not long before he realises that the job is NOT for him. He needs to follow his heart and his dream of being an artist. He quits his job at the bank and makes a decision.

He is going to be an artist! He puts all the pictures he has drawn into a portfolio and goes off for another interview. He gets the job! He loves the job!

Duck is a semi-autobiographical book about being honest with yourself, with what you want to do long term, and about taking pride in what you love. And above all else, that easy work will never satisfy you.

  • Genius.

    This duck is a real go-getter. With the right attitude and those adorable little duck shoes and socks he takes on the corporate world and finds success. But then something radical happens. Duck has to ask some hard questions of himself and what he really wants from his career ("quack-reer", if you will).

    I absolutely love this book and you will too.
