Book Description

Feb. 1 1994
A wild collection of zany pictures and clever rhymes offers the weirdest menagerie ever assembled, including such crazily nonsensical animals as the Porcupin, who leaves his enemies in stitches, the frustrated and hungry Fanger, and the dime-eating Crocodial.

Product Description

From Booklist

Ages 5-8. The clever, full-page, black-and-white illustrations by the late Marshall may make this reissue of a poetry collection first published in 1980 worth the price tag. The balloon-captioned comments add a fresh dimension to the verses. "He's extinct with fatigue," snidely remark two rats as the Dinosore soaks his aching feet. While a tad too cute, the 22 rhymes about such unusual critters as the Edgehog, Pythong, and Crocodial have appealing wordplay and childlike silliness. Julie Corsaro
