This delightful story chronicles the adventures of a quirky pet duck

Yackey, a new children's book by Jeane Auguste, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Based on a duck that lived next door to the author and her children, Yackey is loved by all. Whether following his master around "like a pet dog" or playing with the children next door, he fits right in with the neighborhood. Yackey's quirks, like his inexplicable love for watermelon, make him all the more endearing. Still, as a duck taken out of his natural habitat, Yackey is sometimes caught off guard, especially by the weather.

Follow Yackey's "funny hop-hop, waddle-waddle, hop-hop" through his two favorite yards, and he will feel just like a friendly neighbor to you, too.

Jeane Auguste, author of Poetic Memoirs of Beverly Jeane Ray, wrote this book for her children when they were young under the penname chosen by them. A native of Arizona, she is now retired and still lives in the state. In addition to writing, her interests include reading, hiking, travel, crafts, and painting.

Yackey is a 34-page paperback with a retail price of $8.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-0208-5. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc. of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For more information or to request a review copy, please visit our virtual pressroom at or our online bookstore at
