From Publishers Weekly

Making her debut, Gardiner introduces gangly, black-haired Poppy and her spotted dog, Max, both of whom enjoy imitating Poppy's "favorite animals." They can roar like a tiger, stand on one leg like a flamingo and bounce like a kangaroo. Gardiner emphasizes the uncanniness of their impersonations on each spread, by pairing each performance with a portrait of the actual animal. Drawing on her roots as a fabric designer, she features Poppy in a giraffe-print dress as the girl

Great beginning reader book!

This would be a great book for young antsy storytimers or antsy children you are trying to take care of. It could involve some action and noises from them. But it is very simple and easy for a book. Probably a good beginning reader, too, since the text is minimal and in large type, and the pictures help show what is going on very easily.
preschoolers loved this book. They are going to the zoo next week and loved seeing the animals in a quick-to-read book. I had them waddling like a penguin, and bouncing like a kangaroo. Fun book. It did lead into the question of what animals they wanted to see at the zoo next week. Everyone had an answer for that.

My son loved this book around age 2, he loved how Poppy imitated the animals, in action and dress, and especially loved her dog Max.
