Image: Moby-Duck: The True Story of 28,800 Bath Toys Lost at Sea and of the Beachcombers, Oceanographers, Environmentalists, and Fools Including the Author Who Went in Search of Them, by Donovan Hohn (Author). Publisher: Penguin Books; Reprint edition (February 28, 2012)Sesame Street Rubber Duckie's Birthday/National Rubber Ducky Day (1970)
-- Rubber Duckie is Ernie's toy duck and most treasured possession. Ernie has expressed his fondness for his duckie in several songs, most famously Rubber Duckie, but the duck has also figured in Put Down the Duckie, D-U-C-K-I-E, Do De Rubber Duck, and The Honker-Duckie-Dinger Jamboree.

Read: Moby-Duck: The True Story of 28,800 Bath Toys Lost at Sea
-- When the writer Donovan Hohn heard of the mysterious loss of thousands of bath toys at sea, he figured he would interview a few oceanographers, talk to a few beachcombers, and read up on Arctic science and geography. But questions can be like ocean currents: wade in too far, and they carry you away. Hohn's accidental odyssey pulls him into the secretive arena of shipping conglomerates, the daring work of Arctic researchers, the lunatic risks of maverick sailors, and the shadowy world of Chinese toy factories. Moby-Duck is a journey into the heart of the sea and an adventure through science, myth, the global economy, and some of the worst weather imaginable.
