Silly, silly picture book about self-discovery and duck identity crises. Very good. ( )

This is the sweet and funny story of a cat who grows up among ducks and believes himself to be a duck, even though he doesn't always fit in. When he meets a cat, he revels in living "the cat life", but grows to miss his duck friends. He comes to realize that he does not have to choose between his duck friends and his cat friends, but can be friends with both and be his own unique self. Simple but lovely artwork.

Younger students. Friendship and diversity. Lots of visuals with easy words. Awesome for ELL students and LD students.

Quackers was a duck. He knew he was a duck because he lived at the pond with all the other ducks, and because everyone he knew was a duck. He might have been unlike the other ducks, but there was never any question that he was one. Then one day he met Mittens, a duck that seemed more like him than any he had met before. Through Mittens, Quackers discovered the life of a cat - the pleasures of chasing mice, the enjoyment of lapping milk. Was he through being a duck, or could he be both feline and anatine?

A charming and humorous title, Quackers is author/artist Liz Wong's debut picture-book, and pairs an engaging tale of a cat experiencing an identity crisis with immensely appealing artwork. The visuals here, from the decorative end-papers, complete with adorable ducks and cats, to the cute-as-a-button feline (anatine?) hero, are immensely appealing, and really increased my enjoyment of the story. Recommended to anyone looking for fun children's books featuring characters who feel somewhat out-of-step with their peers, and who struggle to find their place in the world. ( )
