A young boy weighs the pros and cons of possessing various animal appendages--such as a duck's feet, a deer's antlers, a whale's spout, an elephant's trunk, and a long, long tail--only to decide that he's better off just being himself. A zany, insightful story that beginning readers will wish to hear again and again--with a new "Dr. Seuss" author credit
