Editorial Reviews for this title:
Dr. Seuss is quite simply the most beloved children's book author of all time. His real name was Theodore Geisel. On books he wrote to be illustrated by others, he used the name Theo. LeSieg, which is Geisel spelled backwards.B. Tobey was a longtime illustrator-cartoonist for The New Yorker. He died in 1989.
"This zany story of a boy's wishes for duck feet, a whale spout, deer horns, a long tail, elephant's trunk, etc. will be a favorite with young readers."-- School Library Journal.
Another silly title from the Beginner Books series (the same place that Dr. Seuss and the Berenstains hang their hats), I Wish That I Had Duck Feet follows one little guy's dreams of borrowing all sorts of useful appendages from the animal world. "I wish that I had duck feet. And I can tell you why. You can splash around in duck feet. You don't have to keep them dry." But each time he imagines something new--those duck feet, a prickly pair of deer horns perfect for playing football, a spraying whale spout to keep his classroom cool--he realizes that it's not always all it's cracked up to be. "BUT... If I had a long, long tail, I know that Big Bill Brown would tie me in a tree! He would! Then how would I get down?" A vacuuming mom and pipe-smoking dad are straight out of '60s suburbia ( Duck Feet first came out in 1965), but the playful illustrations and catchy rhymes still make for good fun. (Ages 4 to 8) --Paul Hughes
