The Magic finger by Roald Dahl, illustrated by Quentin Blake, Puffin Books (Penguin Books), London, 1964.
This is a cute short story with the theme of putting ourselves in someone else's shoes. In this case, a family is turned into duck, while the ducks take over their home, after they get carried away with their hunting. This could be considered an anti-hunting book, but I interpret it to be not getting over ambitious, but to do things in moderation. I probably have it wrong, but I think people should be able to hunt in its proper place.
