ALL HIS DUCKLINGS
CHRISTIAN DUDA

The story about Konrad, the fox, and Lorenz, the duckling he finds inside an egg, under its mother’s belly (a duck), in the middle of the forest. Actually, Konrad wants to eat the duck mother, but she flies away leaving her egg behind. It doesn’t matter… Konrad also loves scramble eggs…

However, the little duckling breaks the shell on time, he looks around and, excited, says hello to the fox: “Mommy, mommy!”

- “No, I am your dad!”, Konrad points out. And since a father can’t eat his son, Konrad’s stomach will go on complaining with hunger. The time goes by and Lorenz falls in love with Emma the duck… and then it happens what is obvious… the more ducklings appear around him, the less Konrad thinks about eating roast duck… and finally the numerous group of ducks that he is bringing up will occupy the whole forest.
