We've got some great gnus for ewe here--lots of other hilarious animal puns that are sure to shark you. In this brilliantly illustrated book you can see the seal of approval, and meet a moose with a mousetache. The 80 outrageous puns in the collection will make this just the condor book you'll gopher. Full color.

I thought that the animal puns in this book were hilarious, what I didn't care for was the artwork, it just didn't appeal to me that much, and I thought that some of the pictures were on the border line of grotesque. Norton Juster always cracks me up, I'd recommend this book, but be wary of the illustrations.

Cute. More word play. Not as much fun as Stark Naked, but sure to bring a smile to your face.

I would've given it 3 stars, but my 8-year-old says it's her new favorite library book.
