Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
If you want some really corny poems that have a romantic flavor and involve a variety of animals then sit right down with this book. A kangaroo has a pocket full of posies that she gives to her intended, the elephant asks his love to remember him forever and her closing line notes that elephants never forget. The monkey is ape for his love and frog claims that he will croak if his love is not returned, and poor hare is very sad because he loves "Some Bunny Special" and he does not appear to be the object of her affection. The illustrations are just as humorous as the verses, and kids will find plenty of extra humor in them. I especially enjoyed "What a Chicken" in which a rooster can't get up his nerve to ask a hen named Gwen for a date, and "A Moosetake" where a moose fall for a Jersey cow. The final verse explains that "People are Animals Too" and concludes "the best kind of animal-person is You!" So give this book to your favorite animal (child) and perhaps even an adult who enjoys puns and a laugh. There is even a gift card inside. 2005, Margaret K McElderry Books/Simon & Schuster, Ages 4 to 8.
