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.


A fly, a frog, a cat, and a dog, give chase along with several other critters as a little boy tries to help sort out the mayhem. This cumulative, rhyming tale bounces along with an arc of suspense and most of all, humor.
