Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
What do you call an elephant that hardly ever gets thirsty, and a long necked ferret? A camelephant and girafferret, naturally! That what Bernard Most says, anyway, and his words are good enough for me! They'll also be perfect for riddle-loving youngsters who will want to create their own Zoodles of fanciful fauna after savoring Mr. Most's.
Stephanie Zvirin
Here's a book bound to tickle a funny bone or two. On each right-hand page, a simple animal riddle containing a hint appears: "What do you call an iguana that hogs all the food?" A flip of the page yields the answer ("A piguana"), complete with a picture of the two animals whose names have been combined. Children will know most of the animals the author uses and quickly grasp the idea behind the game. But even if they don't guess every riddle correctly, the crazy word combinations will have them laughing so hard they'll be clamoring to try riddles of their own. With nicely sized, colorful marker illustrations, sharply defined by thick black lines, the book will be as successful with a small group as it will with an individual child.
