WALLHAVEN — Workers at The Bookseller Inc. were surprised July 14 by a new web-footed customer.

Shown at top right, a mallard came to the door of the shop that afternoon, and also waddled to the door of neighboring business, The Discovery Shop, while a handful of humans gathered around, considering what to do about the visitor, who was given a cup of water to drink.

Bookseller staffers Andrea Klein and Tracy Klein live in the Summit Lake area, so another staff member, Linda Keliar, coaxed the duck into a book box so that she could be taken to the shore of the lake, where she was released in the proximity of several other mallards, who readily welcomed her into the fold, shown at bottom right.
