My Brother the Duck

Is Stella's new baby brother a duck? All the evidence seems to be pointing in that direction, but Stella knows that scientists can't just wing it. Further research is definitely required. So with the help of her friend Carla, she gathers evidence. He looks like a duck when he gets dried off in his duck hoodie towel, and his constant cry sounds just like a quack. And as her principal points out: "If it looks like duck and sounds like a duck, it’s probably a duck."

This laugh-out-loud story is full of witty humor, from Stella's suspicion at her brother's name — Drake — to the way her careful observation of scientific rigor still leads her astray. This new sibling book by best-selling author Pat Zietlow Miller includes humor, heart, and a dash of the scientific process sure to delight young readers.

"Redheaded Stella Wells is a self-described 'fledging scientist' with a chip on her shoulder (the new sibling kind) and a hypothesis to prove: 'my baby brother might be a duck.' The theory starts with her pregnant mother’s waddle and seems confirmed by the baby’s name — Drake — his annoying quack-like cry, and uncanny resemblance to a duck when he uses a pacifier or gets dried off with his duck hoodie towel.... However disgruntled Stella may be, her STEM skills are a model for any sibling, human or otherwise." — Publishers Weekly
