Duck Dares to Dream in New Children’s Book by Raymond Copp


Dog Ear Publishing releases “Carolyn Quimby” by Raymond Copp.

A farm duck has a series of adventures in this new children’s chapter book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

 “Sometimes loving someone means you have to let them go…” For Carolyn Quimby, a white duck, life on the farm isn’t enough; instead, she dreams about flying with wind blowing through her feathers, even though everyone knows farm ducks can’t fly. This new chapter book features Carolyn and her friends who live on Farmer Wilson’s farm in a story filled with friendship and love.

“Carolyn Quimby” stars a charming cast of characters, including Clomper, a Belgian draft horse who is the oldest animal living on the farm, and Professor Hopatoadalopolos, a wise toad who lives in Trickling Brook and is rumored to be older than the farm itself. After mallard ducks visit the farm’s pond, Carolyn is given a surprising invention that might help her achieve her dream. Her father, Peanuts Quimby, had his own flying adventure, thanks to a traveling circus.

A daring rescue from hunting dogs, a kitchen visit that creates havoc and new friends for the farm bring excitement to all who live there. It’s not until she faces loss, however, that Carolyn will find the courage to act on her dream and learn how to fly. Whimsical watercolor illustrations by Mary Manning bring the characters to life, showing clearly the bonds of friendship they share.

Author Raymond Copp is a clinical psychologist specializing in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Copp, who had a 30-year career in law enforcement, also serves as a battalion chaplain with the Maryland Army National Guard. He became a Catholic priest after 9-11. Copp has written eight children’s picture and chapter books as well as poetry.
