The Nantucket Duckling

Meet ACk!

On the island of Nantucket lives a little duckling with a big problem. Ack is afraid to march in the annual Duckling Parade. Will he be laughed at because his beak is so different?  Or will he find a way to avoid the Parade before it's too late? Ack: The Nantucket Duckling is a celebration of unconditional love and self acceptance. You’ll be inspired as Ack learns to stop hiding his differences and embraces his uniqueness.

About the Duck

From a certain perspective, the shape of the island of Nantucket, a beautiful haven off the coast of Cape Cod, looks a lot like a duck.  And so a map of the island became the inspiration for the Nanducket brand.  And of course, it only made sense that we would name the hero of our book — a young duckling — after Nantucket’s famous airport, ACK.

At Nanducket, we believe in making friends and spreading kindness. When you wear the duck, it's a symbol that your kids are loved just as they are.
