Story Summary

On Tuesday, three little ducklings received their names. The third, the weakling of the group, was named Darcy and when they went for their first swim, Darcy was discovered to be a circular duck, he could only swim in circles. Crippled in his parents eyes, there was nothing for it but to take him to the home for circular ducks. While devasted by their son's humiliating disability, Darcy's parents couldn't help but notice that all of the circular ducks seemed quite happy.
