                                                                Edited by Ronald Ritter & Sussan Evermore

                       This is the best digital ebook edition of  'The Tale of Jeremy Puddle Duck' you will ever buy'

Jemima is a domestic duck whose eggs are routinely confiscated by the farmer's wife because she believes Jemima a poor sitter. Jemima searches for a place away from the farm where she can hatch her eggs without human interference, and naively confides her woes to a suave fox who invites her to nest in a shed at his home.
Jemima accepts his invitation, little realizing her danger. The fox plans to kill and roast her. Kep, a collie on the farm discovers Jemima's whereabouts and rescues her just in time.
Jemima, Kep, the farmer's wife and her two children were all modelled on real world individuals at Potter's Hill Top farm in Sawrey in the lakes District of England.
