Jeremy's teacher Mrs. Nuddles thinks he belongs in a zoo-and she isn't far from the truth. Jeremy lives in an animal house, where refrigergators roam free, floormingoes don't mind being stepped on, and manatee-vees broadcast the news. When Mrs. Nuddles visits Jeremy's house herself, she witnesses the amazing animal house firsthand: the snailbox full of mail, the armapillow happy to let her rest her head, and-unfortunately for Mrs. Nuddles-the vulchair, who might be a bit hungry today. Young readers will delight in the silly wordplay and bright, detailed illustrations of this wild story.
