Description
The creator of Tacky the Penguin and Wodney Wat lends her charismatic animal drawings to this lyrical menagerie by William Wise. In 25 poems about whales, bats, tigers, crocodiles, elephants, and pandas, as well as less often seen animals like the tapir, the agouti, and the tern, readers 5 to 9 are treated to vocabulary-stretching wordplay and proverbial puns, where one good tern deserves another, and panda-monium reigns.

"Not your usual zoo, this happy gathering of poetry and verse is broadly inclusive of its denizens, who live in unfettered joy within handsomely designed pages."Horn Book (starred review)

"Exuberant wordplay fuels this animal-themed collection of light verse.... As in the author and illustrator's previous collaboration, Dinosaurs Forever, Munsinger will keep kids riveted with her goofy, anthropomorphic illustrations, and the chanting rhythms and spot-on rhymes will perk up listeners."Booklist
