A Geoduck Is Not a Duck

A Story of a Unique Pacific Northwest Mollusk
by Candy Wellins; Illustrated by Ellie Peterson

Learn about the Pacific Northwest’s most unique shellfish in this hilarious account of mistaken identity.

In this fun and engaging graphic novel picture book mashup, a beachside breaking news story clues the audience into a dramatic development: there’s a gooey duck on the loose!

As the report goes on, it becomes clear to the audience that the news reporter doesn’t realize his story isn’t about a duck covered in goo but is instead about the world’s largest burrowing clam, a geoduck (pronounced gooey duck).

This story of mistaken identity is full of more twists and turns than a rough day at sea and will have everyone laughing as the reporter slowly uncovers the truth about the geoduck.

The book also includes fun facts about geoducks.
