Since the dawn of civilization, people have imagined creatures that combine parts of different animals, such as the Griffin (lion + eagle) and the Cockatrice (rooster + serpent). Following that tradition, Keith DuQuette creates a world of hybrid animals as wondrous as any found in mythology.

Readers will thrill to discover such creatures as the proud Cooster (cow + rooster), who greets the day with his unique call, and the poor Mosquiphant (mosquito + elephant) who's just too fat to fly. And who could forget the Tortare (tortoise + hare), who wins the race no matter what?

Featuring short, witty poems accompanied by eye-popping artwork, Cock-a-doodle Moo! is a visual tour de force that offers a fantastic world of possibilities--no doubt readers will soon be making up hybrids of their own!
