Can You Top That? uses a countering structure, patterned text, and lively illustrations to present the hyperbolic world of children. A snake with three tongues? A cat with five eyes? A goat with eight horns? A horse with ten heads? Only in the lively imagination of children can this occur. The book lends itself as a jumping off point for children to make their own book of fantastic animals.About the Author:
