Duck! Rabbit! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
Chronicle Books (March 2009), $17
Is it a duck? Is it a rabbit? Were those duck sounds or rabbit sounds? “It’s totally a duck.” “It’s for sure a rabbit.” In this unusual book, Amy Krouse Rosenthal uses an ambiguously drawn animal to play with our expectations. It’s imaginative, full of humor, and almost as amusing for adults as it is for children. Exercise your eyes with this visually witty book.
