Duck! Rabbit!

Duck! Rabbit! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld is a fascinating book. In it we are privy to a debate between two voices as to what the animal in this cover illustration is. One is convinced it's a duck, the other is sure it's a rabbit. The unseen characters argue amongst themselves: Are those bills or ears? Is it flying or hopping? Will it eat bread or a carrot? Is it wading in the swamp or hiding in the grass? Maybe if they call it they can decide... "Here, ducky ducky! Here, you cute little rabbit!" Oh no! They've scared it away. Was it a duck or rabbit? We may never know. But check out this cool anteater. Or is it a brachiosaurus...
