What to expect

A hilarious new adventure featuring the infamous Duck and his long-suffering friends, Sheep, Goat and Frog.

Duck and friends go out one day
with a bat, a ball and a glove to play.

Duck hits the ball – but where does it fall?
On a branch in the tree, now they can’t play at all.

Frog has an idea, Duck lends a hand
but nothing turns out quite as planned.
