Aimsly, the new duck, is a handsome fellow, his feathers perfect, his tail so colorful, but his attitude is terrible. The others don't think he's polite to everyone on the farm. Belle and Gretchen ask Zander the pig what can be done about Aimsly's bad attitude. When Zander tries to befriend the new duck, he is rebuffed. Zander tours the farm asking for advice from the other animals: how can they help Aimsly be more friendly? Soon, they devise a plan, a plan that has the new duck changing his outlook. A picture book for children, Aimsly's Attitude communicates the importance of getting along and power of friendship.
Oh my, Zander thought, such an attitude. "don't you want to belong? Don't you care what others think about you?"
"No. I know am good-looking and that I'm here to take over the old guy's place, you know Kale. What kind of a name is that for a duck? Anyway, he'll probably end up a duck soup."
