The kids in Miss Darling's class are very lucky--what other classroom has its own alphabet zoo?
There's always an animal adventure unfolding in Room 22, with an Anaconda for lounging, a lunch-stealing Lemur, a Moose to hang coats, a Yak that kisses, and a Zorilla with fumes (pee-ewwww!).
From the author of the bestselling Antarctic Antics: A Book of Penguin Poems comes another collection of delightfully playful poems. Every kid will want to join this class!
