Just a Duck?

Carin Bramsen. Random, $17.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-385-38415-5
Lighthearted questions of identity persist in this tender companion to Hey, Duck! This time, Bramsen’s ever-so-feathery yellow Duck is exploring its inner feline. “A cat? But you don’t look like me,” reacts Cat. “I will when I grow up—you’ll see,” retorts Duck. As they play, Cat happily humors Duck, whose confidence is briefly shaken when it realizes it lacks a cat’s ears or claws but gets a big boost when it rescues Cat after an inadvertent dunk in the lake. A gently funny story of the differences, similarities, and compromises that make for rewarding friendships. Ages 3–7. Agent: Marietta Zacker, Nancy Gallt Literary Agency. (Jan.)
