More about A True Tale of a Chicken-Duck Named Chuck

A True Tale of a Chicken-Duck Named Chuck is a children’s story written by Jennifer Meiring and illustrated by Carmen Hampson. It is a story of unconditional love, and unconventional family. As the title indicates, it is based on a true story of a hen (who lived on a farm in rural Michigan) who found and hatched a duck egg, and raised the duckling as her own. This rhyming story will entertain young children, and touch the hearts of adults.
