At first, the waterfowl don't seem to have a prayer. They hatch on a conveyor belt in a vast alligator-run factory, then their predators ship them off to Ducktown, where friendly placards encourage them to Eat a Lot and Fatten Up.

It's a prosperous concern operated under the stern gaze of a gang of alligators; one egg rolls loose off the vast conveyor belt system and lands at the foot of an alligator worker. Rather than being snapped up, literally, the little duck is gently carried home in the alligator's lunchbox. There, friendship blooms and the ugly truth is Lesen Sie mehrAlle Rezensionen ansehen by Alan D.
