Book Three in the Waddling Dead Series has arrived and with it a young duck with an unusual power. Tight Squeeze is a contortionist, but he changes his mind as often as he changes his shape. Will he be a duck lamppost, a duck violin (without the strings), or a duck porcupine? Will he save the Kingdom of Waddle when the orchard catches fire? Can any of his shapes command the Volunteer Feather Department or guide the driver of a fire truck who can't drive? Share the suspense in Waddleland with this out-of-proportion adventure!
