Oh, brother!"

A Visit to Dr. Duck: Rosemary Wells
Felix overdoes it with the chocolate one night and wakes up feeling ill. Mama tries various remedies such as tea and fresh air, but Felix is still "not feeling perkier."

A visit to Dr. Duck is in order. But Felix is afraid.

His fears are soon soothed and the visit goes well with a check of his vitals, including ears and temperature. A dose of "Happy Tummy" does the trick, and by morning, Felix is his old self.

A reassuring book to help sooth totz' fears before a visit to the doctor. Sweet and tender, and just what the doctor ordered!
