121 possible animal combinations!

What do you get if you cross a pig with a turkey? Why, that would be a purkey! And a sheep with a rabbit? That would be a shabbit, of course! A very silly but absolutely compelling book that will charm the whole family.

Praise For Flip Flap Farm

Bold colors, phonetically zippy rhymes, sturdy book construction and countless creature combinations are a winning formula for beginning readers and storytimers.
—Kirkus Reviews

Eleven common animals are introduced here with a jaunty two-stanza verse and a simple, hearty full-page illustration. ... Even kids who can’t read the poetic text will appreciate the Frankenpossibilities.
