Sorry we have not been updating like we should! MAJOR FAIL on our parts.

Timothy- the brilliant illustrator of Ducky Adventures- has been very busy lately. He has a major deadline for work. Thankfully the deadline is soon! Hopefully we will be posting more regularly starting next week! Until then, enjoy these sketches Timothy left at the Montreal Bio-Dome chalk board back in November!

In Israel, cucumbers and pickles are BIG BUSINESS, and Ducky (always the entrepreneur) has been busy preparing a crop of grade-A “mel-ah-fe-FONE” (that’s Hebrew for cucumber). First he used his hoe to make the dirt really soft. Then he planted some cucumber vines. A few days later, some flowers started to bloom. After a few weeks, a few tiny cucumbers appeared. In a month or two, it all add up to one thing. PICKLE MAKING TIME!! Only, he is not sure how to make pickles, but he will figure that out when it is time.

Makin' pickles is hard work!

Makin’ pickles is hard work!

This week, a hip new bakery opened up in the mall and Ducky was the first in line. He has been checking up on all of his favorite food blogs, and Frosted is one of the top talked about places for 2014. After looking for more than 10 minutes, and agonizing over which treat to choose, Ducky finally made a decision. He headed over to the cash register and was shocked to see Amanda Panda. “What are you doing here?” he demanded.

“Silly, this is my bakery. Well my mom’s, but I get to help. What are you doing here?” She asked.

“We are here as official judges to see if your little bakery is as good as the blogs say.” Ducky replied. “We would like three large cup cakes. One for each of us. Ted wants chocolate, Blizzard wants chocolate orange, and I would like mint chocolate chip.”

She glared at them, then placed the cup cakes in a fancy box and started tying a fancy bow.

“Just give it to us already,” Ducky shouted, “Ain’t nobody got time for all that fuss. We are ready to eat!”

“Hhmph!” Amanda Panda huffed, “This is a five star bakery! Not a cafeteria! You boys just ruin everything!”

“We’ll be the judge of that.” Ducky said giving her the stink eye. “I’m sure these cup cakes will taste like dirt, if Amanda Panda made them.”

“Go on try it I dare you!” Amanda Panda snapped.

“Wow! These are awesome.” Ted said. “This is the best cup cake ever!” Blizzard replied.

“Now, now. Don’t just say that to be nice. We are judges and we need to be fair.” Ducky says. Then he took one bite. Then another, and another and another until the whole thing was gone.

“So…” Amanda asked.

“I guess they were okay. Not the best, but okay.” Ducky said slyly. “Can I get two dozen to go?”

So many wonderful treats to choose from...
