Ducky, a plastic toy, is packed with hundreds of other bath toys in a crate on a ship from China. A storm causes the crate to fall overboard where Ducky and his other plastic friends are left bobbing in the ocean. Terrified Ducky tells the story from his point of view. After a very long time, Ducky washes ashore and is found by a boy. The boy reports to Mrs. James who is keeping a record of other toys, like Ducky, who have been found in the area. This book is illustrated with a cartoon style using colored cut paper and other mixed medium to tell a suspenseful story that actually happen in 1992 with a shipment of bathtub toy animals being shipped to Tacoma, Washington.
