From cover to cover, this book is both cute and fascinating. Older readers will recognize this simplified but appealing version of the classic duck/rabbit optical illusion. Both grown-ups and kids will be drawn in by the dramatically expressive, though simple, text and artwork of this version as two unseen characters debate the age-old question of just what they are looking at...exactly.

Kids will like taking one of the parts, and with repeated readings this book should just be more and more fun. And, each time, the greater lesson, accepting the fact that each of us sees things a little differently, will become more entrenched.

Simple duck/rabbit characters, white with thick black outline, are placed against the bright blue background like clouds against the sky. The ink, watercolor, “and a wee bit of colored pencil” artwork looks quite a bit like that in My Friend Rabbit by Eric Rohmann.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
