Duck! Rabbit!

Duck! Rabbit!

by Amy Krouse Rosenthal Illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld

From the award-winning author of Little Hoot comes a clever take on the age-old optical illusion: Is is a duck or a rabbit? Two unseen narrators lead readers through their comical, differing interpretations of the same simple drawings. There's also a subtle lesson for kids who don't know when to let go of an argument. Full color.
