A simple outline of an animal’s head initiates a dialogue between two unseen observers. One declares that the animal is a duck, while the other insists that it’s a rabbit. “See, there’s his bill,” says the voice on the left. “What are you talking about? Those are ears, silly,” replies the voice on the right. What readers can see as the conversation continues is how the observations are accurate depending on the perspective—the animal’s head could be either a duck or a rabbit. A humorous story and visual brainteaser, Duck! Rabbit! offers a fresh look at opposing viewpoints. (Ages 3–8)
