"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

"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. 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
