A young boy weighs the pros and cons of possessing quite a lot of animal appendages—such as a duck’s feet, a deer’s antlers, a whale’s spout, an elephant’s trunk, and a long, long tail—only to make a decision that he is better off just being himself. A zany, insightful story that beginning readers will want to hear time and again!
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 will be able to tell you why. You’ll splash around in duck feet. You would not 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 isn’t all the time 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.
