ALA Booklist
The animals in this playful picture book are up to some surprising activities: "A pair of striped zebras are climbing a tree. / Giraffes on vacation swim in the sea. / The polar bear cubs try to take off and fly as butterfly snowflakes appear in the sky." In lilting, rhyming couplets, Magee offers a delightfully absurd image of the animal kingdom, and Tucker's brightly colored renditions reveal these creatures at their silliest, both in literal interpretations of the verses and scenes of additional animals up to other antics, such as frogs on pogo sticks and a racoon examining a mandrill's teeth. The bright colors, stylized figures, and frenetic compositions are a fitting complement to the zany text. The closing pages offer additional tips for teaching poetry and some activities that relate directly to the text, as well as some bonus information on a few of the animals featured in the book. With plenty of eye- and ear-catching scenes, this fun and engaging title is a perfect fit for storytime.
