More conversation than narrative, this charming book poses all manner of questions worth pondering.  Would you rather…tickle a monkey or dance with goats?  The more harrowing questions, like Would you rather be… swallowed by a fish or sat on by a rhinoceros? are tempered by Burningham’s wonderfully silly drawings.


Gorgeous scratchboard art to swoon over from the author/illustrator of the classic Corduroy.  Earl’s mom thinks he’s been spoiled by a little girl who feeds him acorns each day.  It’s time he set out and find some grub on his own!  But will he know how to get his paws on some?
