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.

I’m merrier than a terrrier.

Swish!  I’m a fish.

This 1951 classic easy reader bursts with joy, imagination and enough adorable art to charm a snake with.
