Luella is born to a motherless nest and is adopted by two adventurous young sisters named Mae and Zoe. But when they bring Luella home, Luella adopts Pancake, the family dog, as her mother!
Life with Luella is a challenge for the girls as Luella refuses to learn to swim and insists that she’s a puppy not a ducky!
In the end the girls learn a lot from Luella. And Luella learns a lot from Pancake the Pug, including how to swim and possess her “duckness.”
