Solution to Make Way for Ducklings

The Ministry

by Foggy Brume
Art by Joe Cabrera

Get your ducks in a row to form clues by taking each baby duck and rearranging its letters behind one of the mother duck's letters (e.g., S+CEGOOR gives SCROOGE).

The answer to each clue rhymes with "quack" and starts J through Q. The ducks in the Make Way for Ducklings statue on the Boston Common are named, in order, Jack, Kack, Lack, Mack, Nack, Ouack, Pack and Quack. Take the word in the clue that corresponds with the first letter of the answer. Read the first letters of these words to get AUTOBIOGRAPHY.
