Douglas Florian displays humor both visually and verbally in another collection of poems and paintings that follow the format established in his four earlier volumes: beast feast (1994), on the wing (1996), in the swim (1997), and Insectlopedia (1998), all published by Harcourt. Florian pairs short, pithy poems with delightful full-page color paintings of his subjects, which range here from aardvark to zebra, otter to lemur, tapir to tiger. There are 21 poems in all, full of rhyme, alliteration, assonance, and plenty of laughs. (Ages 5-9)
