Waddles the raccoon loves to eat. In fact, he eats so much that his usual walk has turned into a waddle.

He also loves to spend time with his best friend, Emily the duck, and together they like to go swimming for fish. One day Emily asks Waddles if he could do her a big favor and sit on her unhatched eggs while she takes a swim. The very cuddly Waddles is happy to oblige, but he gets a big surprise when the ducklings begin to hatch! Waddles soon finds himself very attached to the family of ducklings and worries about what will happen when they have to fly south for the winter.

Waddles introduces a lovable new character in a story with a timely message about what truly matters in life, for friendship and love are the only things that can really make someone “full.”
