When young Edward first brought his tiny wild duck to the grand hotel where he worked with his Pa, his only thought was to keep it hidden. After all, he just needed a warm place for his little pet to stay during the day. Everyone helped keep his secret. One day, Mr. Schutt, the blustery hotel manager, discovered the duck swimming in the lobby fountain!
