Humorous rhymes and both realistic and fanciful illustrations illuminate the lives and careers of little-known animals. There s a loris in your chorus? He s quite a singer! Care to play bingo with a dingo? Watch out, he s a sharp one. A babirusa in your bathtub? Better leave him there he loves water! A variety of witty, lively poems makes learning about these unsung animals fun and fun to imitate by writing similar poems about
well-known animals. Teachers and parents will appreciate the series of exercises in the back of the book that focus on the basics of reading: fluency, phonics, phonemic awareness, comprehension and vocabulary. Maxine Rose Schur, of the San Francisco Bay area, is a travel essayist and the author of several children s books. Artist Michael S. Maydak, of Cool,
California, is passionate about illustrating nature.

About the Author:

Michael Maydak is a professional artist who is passionate about nature - especially the riparian environments that he loves so much as a fly fisherman. He and his son, Wolf, often go fishing together. Mike is an art graduate of San Jose University and has been a professional artist since 1976, with his studio at his home in Cool, California. This is the fifth book he has illustrated for Dawn Publications.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4–Glossy spreads introduce 13 exotic animals including the civet, dingo, hagfish, and okapi. A funny, fanciful poem about the creature, illustrated with an anthropomorphic painting, is presented on the left-hand side along with several brief paragraphs of factual information. An attractive, realistic painting depicting the critter in its natural habitat appears on the right. The book ends with a list of hidden objects for readers to find in the main illustrations and engaging enrichment activity ideas for teachers. Though not in-depth, the text is lively and interesting, and the poems (some of which take liberties with spelling and grammar) are fun to share aloud. The intermingling of fact and fancy makes this a good book for helping children to differentiate between science and literature. A supplemental purchase.–S. McClendon, Friends School of Atlanta, Decatur, GA
