Duck! Rabbit! is the newest book
from the prolific Amy Krouse Rosenthal who you might know for children’s books like Little Pea or even her wonderful adult book, Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life. In this case, she’s teamed up with pirates-and-monsters
artist Tom Lichtenheld to breathe new life into the duck/rabbit optical
Are those phalanges a duck’s bill or a rabbit’s ears? Is the eye
facing left or right? The (heated) discussion continues between two unseen narrators on every page.
Though she has no opinion regarding whether it’s a DUCK! or RABBIT! my daughter likes it best
when I change up the voices. Sometimes we use regional dialects.
Sometimes we go international. I find the Elmer Fudd voice to work best for the
rabbit fan. -Rita
