K picked this book up from his school library.

We thought this book was funny, especially try to pronounce some of the mixed up animals.

K's favorite mixed up animal was all of them. Because it was hard to pick just one.
My two favorite animals were the Frutterfly which is a frog and a butterfly and a Girantula which is a giraffe and tarantula. The pictures are funny and makes you wonder what would happen if there were really animals mixed up like that.
Long book with a lot of different animals, f
Let your imagination go wild!

This book was ok, I guess. I paraphrased it for Jenna because some of it was kind of old for her at 3 yrs. I suppose the mixing of animals is something that little kids would find funny and silly...I don't care for that kind of stuff, so maybe that explains my lack of enthusiasm for this one. Jenna seemed to think it was silly and funny at times and at other times, she seemed confused. Not a favorite.

This is well written and illustrated. The rhyming was a little too whimsical to be very clever. Just preference. Children's books have target age ranges. Anyways, it in all honesty, was more of a 4.5 to me, but I had to give it 5 for plain kitschy weirdness and being flat out bizarre.
rhymes about mythical animals morphs into pretend mythical animals such as "ccoster". scared the hell out of viv. icky.
This was a really cute book. After we were done reading it, I had my kids make up their own crazy animal.
Fun idea but WAY too long for kaya.
