Duck! Rabbit! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

A visual puzzle. A thought starter. A duck? No, a rabbit. No really, a duck. How on earth can a duck look like a rabbit? you wonder. Read the book.

You, dear reader, will quack and sniff along with the morphing duck/rabbit. Oh so clever. And fun. How fortunate that Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld have created a picture book that embodies this classic illusion.


And thus demonstrated that things are not always what they seem. It depends on your point of view, and two differing views can both be valid.

The book comes to a perfect ending as each concedes that the other may be right. Quiet at last? Read the book.
