A brand new Melbourne fairy tale about trust, footy, and ducks.

Callie and George find a duck in their backyard, and soon find themselves being adopted(rather than the other way around). A love-letter to Melbourne, this is a brand new fairy tale for everyone who never got to be the main character in the old ones. Sharing Melbourne’s spirit of seriousness and silliness, “The Book of Ducks” is about trusting yourself, finding your team (or at the very least, your footy colours), and embracing the duck inside all of us.
