Duck! Rabbit! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld

From the award-winning author of Little Pea, Little Hoot, and Little Oink comes a clever take on the age-old optical illusion: is it a duck or a rabbit? Depends on how you look at it! Readers will find more than just Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s signature humor herethere’s also a subtle lesson for kids who don’t know when to let go of an argument. A smart, simple story that will make readers of all ages eager to take a side, Duck! Rabbit! makes it easy to agree on one thingreading it again!

Author/Illustrators Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld are two of our absolute favorites, but this is perhaps our favorite book produced by the fantastic duo. We’ve read, reviewed and loved numerous books by both, including The Little Pea series and Goodnight Goodnight Construction Site, but this is definitely our top pick. I recently heard that the duo are back at it again! Take a look:

From Publishers Weekly Children’s Bookshelf:
Scholastic has bought a new Amy Krouse Rosenthal picture book, illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld at auction; the two previously teamed up for the bestselling Duck! Rabbit! The new book, titled “!”, is about “an emphatic but misplaced exclamation mark trying to find his way in the world.”

This is certainly exciting news and I’ll definitely be on the lookout for another fantastic book from this marvelous pair! Until then, enjoy a little video about the book Duck! Rabbit!:

    This is one of my favorite pictures books. It really gets the kids thinking — plus it’s funny! The kindergarten teachers love it in the spring and they have the kids do a drawing project with it.
