Picture Book Review: I Wish that I Had Duck Feet, Dr. Seuss

I Wish that I Had Duck Feet, by Theo LeSeig (Dr. Seuss), illustrated by B Tobey, Random House, New York, 1965.
This is a clever tale, about different animal parts that could make life so interesting, a whale spout to keep cool, duck feet to swim, a tail to jump rope, antlers to wear many hats.  The problem is everything has a drawback.  Sometimes it is better to just be yourself.  I like the little play between the main character and Big Bill Brown.  Dr. Seuss also mixes in the boys parents, who don't want duck feet in the house, or who would make him work all day if he had a cool nose.
