Book Review: The Lumpy Duckling: Another Weaver Tale.

Book Review: Lumpy may be hefty with a misshapen mouth, but he’s funny and the most loyal friend Wheezy could ask for. When she meets Unwanted, she casts a wish for people to be able to see her best friend like she does. Her wish nearly kills him.

My Review: Eloise and Lumpy are good friends who are made fun of by the other kids. Eloise, or Wheezy as the kids called her wander off the road into the trees on the Hollerhead property to avoid being a spectacle. She jumped when she heard an unexpected voice. Then she saw a small blue creature who stepped into the sunshine. She screamed and told the creature to stand where he was. He introduced himself as Unwanted and famous. He told her that he can grant wishes. He said to her, just one wish in exchange for the bottle of chocolate milk. If she could make one wish what would it be? She would make that wish for her fat friend who was always eating candy. So she wished people would see Lawrence Nightingale like she does. So Unwanted granted her wish.

It turns out her wish didn’t quite go the way she expected. While they were out, Lumpy almost die, when he fell head first into the frigid water. He was taken to Paris as the hospital there has better equipment to handle his type of injury. Wheezy felt guilty and wonder if he would return. Would she be able to amend their friendships?

This book is very educational, we have to be grateful for what we have and who we are. We are not God, so we should be careful not to judge the physical appearance of others. And be careful what you wish for.


FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.
