Summary

Jasmine rears an orphaned hatchling duck after his mother is killed by a dog.

When a nesting duck is killed in a terrible accident, Jasmine and her best friend Tom rescue the eggs and try to hatch them in an incubator. It's a risky business but soon Button is running around, getting into scrapes. Until the day he gets into a scrape with no escape...

Brilliant storytelling that will make you laugh and cry, this is Dick King-Smith for a new generation.

Second title in the series

NOTE : Contains details of a school pupil allowing her dog off its leash worrying sheep and attacking and killing a mother duck from her nest. Death of a sheep is also mentioned. Some younger readers may find these events distressing.
