Who ever would have thought a mean and selfish troll could learn to love a baby duck?

Troll doesn't care for being nice. All he wants is to be left alone to count his precious pennies. But while out walking, Troll meets a newly-hatched duck who thinks Troll is his mother and follows him home. "Quack quack quack. Quackadack quack," says the baby duck. Taking pity, Troll eventually agrees to give him a home.

One evening Troll slips out to steal some more pennies and Quackadack Duck follows behind. The young duck is quickly snatched and locked up by an opportunistic store owner. Troll tries to free his friend from the cage, but the only way is to buy him back. Not keen to part with his pennies, Troll returns home alone.

After a troubled night Troll resolves to spend his money and liberate his friend. But the cage is empty -- Quackadack is gone! In a state of despair, his heartstrings tugged, Troll donates his pennies to a little girl wishing to free another duck from the store. On returning to his hole, who should Troll meet but Quackadack Duck! His friend learned the art of escape by watching Troll.

In this comical and heart-rending tale Allen Morgan creates characters that children identify with and scenes they find hilarious.
