it was amazing
bookshelves: picturebooks, poetry

I love the rhyming verses in this book!


Gorillas, though they look like brutes,
may snack on tender bamboo shoots.

The sight of them may shiver us,
but they are not carnivorous.

The book goes on to describe eating habits of the platypus, ostrich, koala, puffin, anteater, tickbird, raccoon, fruit bat, sea otter, porcupine, and crocodile. All of the verses match in rhyme and meter, all are clever, and all are offset by adorable colored line drawings of the animals descrived. This was a wonderful find at a Books Are Fun booksale!
