Note: Children's picture book (for ages 3 and up) by Rieko Nakagawa and Yuriko Yamawaki, with illustrations by Yuriko Omura. From the English-language description at ANN:

In the story, a boy named Yuuji and a rabbit named Gikku find a stick at the same time, and decide to compete in games to decide who can keep the stick. However, whether it is a foot race, long jump, or sumo wrestling, they always end up in a tie.

This story was adapted by Hayao Miyazaki into the Studio Ghibli Museum short film Treasure Hunting in 2011.
