Description

Tongue-twisty teasers lead the reader through a miscellany of animals in this brilliantly illustrated hint-and-reveal book. Careful clues invite the child to guess what's coming next, and rhythm and repetition invite early readers to try out this little riddle book on their own. From toucan to centipede, all will delight in Vlasta van Kampen's colorful art and Charles Ghigna's whimsical words.

Editorial Reviews

"Not only will this board book be a playful delight to the preschool crowd, but it will also teach them a variety of animal facts, prediction strategies, a rhythmic cadence, and a sense of celebration for reaching the end of the book. Highly recommended."

— Resource Links

"Charles' rhyming riddles with help from Vlasta's art create a book full of fun for younger readers as they learn about riddles and rhyming, guessing from hints in the words and the pictures. The plus is that this learning is what readers do all the time. It's a terrific new book!"

— Teacher Dance blog

&quotThis book is adorable with bright and fun illustrations. It makes for a fun engaging read aloud because of the rhyming and the questions. Great fun!&quot

— Kiss the Book blog

"I love this book! And you will, too…Jaunty, rhythmic, and filled with wordplay, it provides many chances to bolster vocabulary and literary understanding. You will find much to consider while reading it together."

— Sal's Fiction Addiction

"Rich, vibrant watercolour paintings enhance the text and provide readers with plenty of details to examine. Clever, whimsical and fun! Recommended."
