From the Bookjacket: 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 real 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.
