Little Miss Dewie - a Duckumentary

Guest Author - Mavis Metcalf

I was not sure what to expect from a duckumentary about, what else - a duck called Little Miss Dewie.

I do know that Mira Tweti is an animal rights activist and I did have issues with one of her books - Here, There and Everywhere, but I decided to have a look at this DVD.

I thought this might be aimed at children - but it would probably not be appreciated by children, since there is too much talk and not enough duck.

This is a true story told by Mira about a duck that she found and her trail to finding a proper home for Little Miss Dewie. Her apartment was obviously not the best place to keep a duck, but she did keep her there for some time before finding a suitable new home for her.

It was interesting watching Mira go through her selections (which included the Playboy Mansion) before finally finding the perfect home that included visitation rights.

I did not write a review of Mira Tweti's book Here, There and Everywhere because I prefer to not write negative reviews. I did not want to leave the mention above about issues with the book without explaining more.

The story itself is kind of fun, but it is written as if this is something that could happen in the present. The fact is that wild caught birds are no longer found in pet stores in the U.S. The part of the book that really scared me is the idea of sending the bird to it's home country to let it free. The government issues and red tape was dealt with in one short paragraph and by the next paragraph they were on the way. My problem with this is that I can see children deciding to let their birds free after reading this book and they may just let the bird free outside the door. Mira is certainly right in encouraging people to research the species before bringing it into the house and not purchase on impulse. By the way, the illustrations by Lisa Brady are beautiful.
