Don't Fidget a Feather!

Overview

Duck and Gander compete in a "freeze in place" contest--whoever moves first loses--and buzzing bees, bouncing bunnies, swarming crows, and whooshing winds test both contestants. But the real winner proves his mettle when Fox picks his prey.

Their contest to decide who is the champion of champions almost has disastrous consequences for Gander and Duck.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A pair of competitive waterfowl have a freeze-in-place contestuntil a fox happens by. "Duck and Gander, with their comic expressions, are an endearing pair," said PW. Ages 4-7. (May)
Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
This is a story with drama and universal appeal. Duck and Gander are competitors. Duck suggests they have a "freeze-in-place" contest. "Don't move! Don't talk! Don't fidget a feather!" Neither one will give in no matter who is bothering them. Fox appears. Who will be the first to "fidget" or will they end up in Fox's cooking pot? The illustrations portray the idyllic scene yet, underscore the impending danger and the subtle humor. Success guaranteed!
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Brimming with confidence, Duck and Gander challenge one another to contests of swimming and flying, hoping to establish once and for all who is the ``champion of champions.'' When the results are inconclusive, Duck suggests a freeze-in-place contest. A host of hilarious interruptions arise to break their concentration, but both remain perfectly still. The situation turns ominous when Fox stumbles onto the contestants and sees an easy dinner. He drags them into his den and prepares a savory stew, until, at the last minute, Duck sacrifices the contest to save Gander from the pot. The story closes with the two friends sharing a steaming bowl of vegetable stew. Children are sure to identify with these characters and their friendly, yet relentless, pursuit to do each other ``one better.'' Schindler's soft illustrations capture the colors of the forest, growing appropriately darker as the crisis builds. As in Silverman and Schindler's Big Pumpkin (Macmillan, 1992), there is just enough predictability here to keep youngsters involved. The engaging art and energetic story line make this a perfect choice for reading aloud.-Lisa S. Murphy, formerly at Dauphin County Library System, Harrisburg, PA
