Gracie has a nice, comfortable life in the Public Gardens. Her days are full of swimming in lakes and fountains, napping in bushes, and gobbling up the delicious treats that the visitors to the park bring especially for her. One day Gracie’s people stop bringing her food, and to fill up, she has to turn to duck food! Despite herself, she starts to enjoy it.
