The book is about competition but it's k to be the 'sore loser' especially when it came to your friends. They were competing to see who was the grandest winner of all and a fox was planning on having them both for dinner. Gander counted on duck to save him and duck was hoping that gander would move so she could win the race. In the end, duck saves gander but gander told duck that she was the winner after all and they enjoyed some soup together. Great artwork colored pencils that will help attract and keep the children's attention.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0027826856, Hardcover)

Duck and Gander are having a contest. But Duck swims faster, and Gander flies higher. So which one is the champion

Then Duck gets an idea: "Don't move," she says, "Don't talk. Don't fidget a feather And the winner will be the one and only, true and forever champion of champions.

But as Duck and Gander stand stock still, along come a host of visitors -- including Fox. Will Duck run? Will Gander? Which is the true champion?

Gentle, funny, and true to life, Erica Silverman's story was inspired by the children next door. S. D. Schindler's rendering of Duck and Gander, which captures perfectly their spirit of rivalry -- and of friendship -- was simply inspired. The result is another irresistible book by the creators of Big Pumpkin.

Their contest to decide who is the champion of champions almost has disastrous consequences for Gander and Duck.
