Synopsis: "At bedtime Felix ate too many chocolate blimpies and stayed up way too late." As Felix suffers the after-effects the next day, his mother offers various remedies (chamomile tea, sugared prunes) before calling Doctor Duck, who perches atop his desk, barely bigger than his telephone. Felix is afraid, but Doctor Duck lets Felix's mother stay with him, then performs a painless examination and doses Felix with "two spoonfuls of Happy Tummy."

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Make copies of the pictures in the book and color them.
•  Draw what your parents/grandparents do for you when you don't feel well.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
