Synopsis: We've got some great gnus for ewe here--lots of other hilarious animal puns that are sure to shark you. In this brilliantly illustrated book you can see the seal of approval, and meet a moose with a mousetache. The 80 outrageous puns in the collection will make this just the condor book you'll gopher. Full color.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4-Billed as the "Winner of the Pullet Surprise," this illustrated book of puns is full of surprises, and only occasionally lays an egg. There is no story or plot, and each pun, e.g., a fuzzy animal in a spacesuit (otter space) or horned animals in sneakers and shorts (Gnu York Marathon), stands on its own. Some may be a little sophisticated for young readers, like the skinny legs flying off the page entitled "heron gone," but they will quickly be reeled back in by the "fast buck," a deer in a racing suit, and a bird wearing a leather jacket (wrenegade). The illustrations are playful and detailed, matching the text in wit and cleverness. Sure to provoke groans, but on the otter hand, as hinted on the last page, kids might have some fauna reading them.
