Publisher Comments:

From author of Little Pea, Little Hoot, and Little Oink comes a clever take on the age-old optical illusion: is it a duck or a rabbit? Depends on how you look at it.

Readers will find more than just Amy Krouse Rosenthal's signature sense of humour here — there is also a subtle lesson for kids who don't know when to let go of an argument. This is a smart, simple story that will make readers of all ages eager to take a side, Duck! Rabbit! makes it easy to agree on at least one thing: reading it again!

Review:

"The team behind The OK Book again plays with perspective and visual trickery, this time using a classic image that looks like either a rabbit (with long ears) or a duck (with a long bill). In a series of spreads that show the boldly outlined duck/rabbit against a blue sky, two offstage speakers, their words appearing on either side of the animal's head, argue their points of view. The snappy dialogue makes for fine read-aloud: 'Are you kidding me? It's totally a duck.' 'It's for sure a rabbit.' Though the main image is basically static, Lichtenheld has fun with the details and setting, placing the animal behind green leaves ('Now the duck is wading through the swamp.' 'No, the rabbit is hiding in the grass'), near water ('Look, the duck is so hot, he's getting a drink.' 'No, the rabbit is so hot, he's cooling off his ears'), etc. The creature's disappearance brings a brief moment of reconciliation, but the twist ending puts the speakers at odds again. Duck? Rabbit? As kids will readily see, it depends on how you look at it. Ages 3 — up." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Who's afraid of the dark?

Not Squish!

Squish Rabbit is a very small rabbit, and he's afraid of lots of things. Like storms. And chickens (you would be too, if you were small!). And the dark. Especially the dark. But when he goes to meet his good friend Twitch the squirrel one evening, he can't find her. She's missing! And it's getting dark! Squish knows he must be brave to find her, but it takes all of his courage . . . to discover that the dark can be magical, especially when filled with stars.

With playful text and adorable illustrations, Brave Squish Rabbit will encourage young readers to face their fears.

Duck! Rabbit! is a wonderfully, visually, stimulating book for children of all ages. This book can be used to creatively stretch the minds of even the youngest reader to create a book like this of their own using other animals that resemble each other in many different ways. My students love this book by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. It's book you can read and listen to repeatedly.
