In Memphis, Tennessee Edward worked at a hotel with his father. One day he found a baby duck and nursed it back to health. He begged his parents to let him keep it and they were hesitant because he couldn't leave it at home while he worked. Eventually they decided he could take it to the hotel with him but he had to keep it a secret from their hotel manager. Everyone who worked at the hotel loved the duck and they kept him a secret for a long time until one day the hotel manager had his duck hunting friends come. The hotel manager agreed to let Edward keep the duck there when he saw the tricks it could do but only if he could teach the other ducks to do them too. After one month he taught all the ducks to do the tricks and the hotel was impressed and lived up to his word. I really like this book because its super cool that he taught the ducks all those tricks. It also shows that with hard work and determination anything can be done. ( )

During the time when the story of John Philip Duck took place, there was a depression and times were hard. One day Edward found a duck in the bushes when he was doing his chores. He begged his parents to let him keep the duck. His parents allowed him to keep the duck, but Edward had to take it to work with him everyday. Edward taught the duck tricks. When the manager found out that Edward was bringing the duck to work and letting him swim in the fountain, he made Edward train the other ducks as well. That was the only way Edward could continue to bring the duck to the hotel. Well, Edward did it. He trained all of the ducks at the hotel to do tricks and put on a show for the customers. Edward became the official Duck-master of the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee. This story really stood out to me because I visited the Peabody Hotel when I was a child. This would be a great story for children to read if they have visited the hotel before, so that they could learn the background story. I also think the message conveyed into this story is simply a boy turning his dream into a reality. ( )

This was a fabulous story, I loved it so much! This story was about Peabody ducks in the Peabody hotel in Memphis, Tennessee. A boy named Edward, founded a little duck on the edge of his pond. He begged his parents to keep the duck, his mother told him that he was very little and probably wouldn’t make it. The rising action of this story is when Edward brought the duck to the hotel. He knew he had to hid it from his general manager. If he got caught with it, his dad and him would both lose their jobs. Soon, all the workers knew about the duck, and help hid it from the general manager. The climax of this story is when the duck was in the pond with the other ducks and the general manager and his friend were getting them out. Edward was almost in tears, when he told the general manager the truth about how that duck was his pet. The resolution in this story is when Edward told his general manager that he trained his duck and he knows how to do tricks and listens. All the guest where watching him with the duck and they loved it! This brought an idea to the general manager and told Edward he had a month to train all the ducks in the pond from earlier. He worked very hard training the ducks! A month passed time was up! Do you think he trained them? I guess you need to read this book too find out. I really enjoyed this book so much I don’t want to tell you the end if you haven’t read it. ( )

This story has elements of friendship, persistence, and loyalty that students can relate to. Edward quickly befriends the ducks, and his father and the other hotel staff are friends and loyal to one another, so they work together to help Edward and protect John. When the duck faces danger, in the form of the hotel manager, Edward steps up to defend his friend, with his father and hotel staff at his side. Edward agrees to train the other ducks and works hard to protect John and the other ducks. His persistence and loyalty pays off when he retires and John stay with him through retirement. He is surprised to find that the other ducks and their offspring also visit his farm during their annual migration time. ( )
