Wonderful, wacky animal poems that will tickle the funny bone and bring on the giggles...

A centipede in running shoes. A lizard who dreams he's a dragon. A whale who prefers showers to baths. These are just a few of the quirky animal friends you'll meet in this imaginative poetry collection. Joan Horton and JoAnn Adinolfi team up again, this time to depict animals of all sizes--from mosquitoes to kangaroos--with the perfect mix of playful language and boisterous pictures. Who wouldn't be delighted by berry-flavored jellyfish?
