"Just when you think you know the boa, / There's moa and moa and moa and moa." The boa and twenty other common and no-so-common critters (armadillo, bat, grasshopper, rhea, sloth, etc.) are subjects of these witty, playful poems, each of which is accompanied by a full-page color illustration. Verbal and visual puns abound in the poems and paintings, which are a creative delight. "The kangaroo loves to leap. / Into the air it zooms, / While baby's fast asleeep / Inside its kangaroom." Get the picture? (Ages 7-11)
