While riding his bike to school, Splat runs into a duck that doesn’t quack. Splat is determined to help the duck get his quack back. Duck seeks the advice of his friends, who all theorize why Duck doesn’t quack. Splat’s friends are eager to help him, and they come up with realistic reasons and some silly reasons that Duck doesn’t quack. One of Splat’s friends suggests, “Duck needs a bow with a little pink dress to match. That will bring his quack back.” Finally, Splat goes to get advice from his teacher, Mrs. Wimpydimple. Through trial and error, Mrs. Wimpydimple discovers what was needed to bring back Duck’s quack.
