Praise

“A duck likes to pretend to be other animals, much to the consternation of a very pragmatic cat…. beginning readers can have fun…” —Kirkus Reviews


“When Duck insists he is a cat and meows to prove his claim, Cat corrects his obvious error by asserting that ducks always say ‘quack, quack.’ But silly Duck would much rather stick to ‘meow,’ and Cat fails to convince him otherwise, no matter how hard he tries. Flake, best known for her middle school novels, presents a hilarious picture book that will surely beg multiple readings, with the absurd premise that nothing should be assumed, no matter how obvious. Cat is the straight man to screwball Duck, and this makes the two an appealing pair sure to be adored by young readers. Raff’s soft pastel illustrations are a perfect match for the quick-witted, comic book-style text. Children will enjoy observing Cat’s mood as it shifts from smug self-righteousness to angry frustration to confused acceptance by the end of the story. Fans of Mo Willems’s popular ‘Elephant and Piggie’ and ‘Pigeon’ series will embrace this silly animal tale wholeheartedly. A delightful picture book, ideal for storytime and for supporting teaching units on animal sounds.” —School Library Journal
