Overview

Who but this author and artist could see a rhinoceros in a train locomotive or a kangaroo in a baby carriage? With perfect accord this creative team from very different parts of the world see the possibility of animals in stripes, spots, dots, and rows. With quirky energy and electric imagination, a gifted poet and a brilliant artist cast a sharp eye on design and transportation in a new pair of Animagicals titles. In each book, twelve poems pose riddles that are answered in twelve full-page, fold-out paintings of animals, each portrayed with humor, empathy, and sensitivity. Whether it's comparing a dragonfly with helicopter in the On the Go, or describing the titles on a turtle's shell in Patterns, Animagicals engage the mind and delight the eye of both children and adults.

Rhyming text describes characteristics of various animals whose identities are revealed by lifting movable flaps.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
On the Go and Patterns, two additions to the Animagicals series by Carol Diggory Shields, illus. by Svjetlan Junakovic, features transformations with the lift of a flap. In the first, the front green fender of a sports car turns into the back end of a beetle; in the second, only the animal's patterned fur shows until the flap is opened and its head appears. (July) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-These offerings-long, narrow, and rectangular-are great fun. Shields's riddle poems face simple, colorful paint-and-crayon illustrations. The right-hand page folds out from the center to reveal the answer to the riddle through another illustration and the last few words or a line of the poem. On the Go is the more challenging of the two for the clues are tougher: "A tricycle's slow,/compared to a bike,/But going slow/is what we like./We slither along,/leaving our trails-." Junakovic's art provides hints about the creature as parts of tires on a trike turn out to be the back section of-fold out the page-"Slow but steady, three little snails." Patterns presents clues that most readers will guess. These fine, fresh offerings are good choices for groups.-Meghan R.
