What do you get if you cross an elephant with a lion? Why, a elephon. And a zebra with a crocodile? A zebodile, of course! A very silly but absolutely compelling book that will charm the whole family.

I LOVE this book. It is very interactive for children and so fun. It has the descriptions for all the animals in the book with bold words that can be used for vocabulary. As you turn the pages, there are different animals and you can make up different animals with them, such as a "cheetodile", a body and head of a cheetah and the bottom half of a crocodile. Children will really enjoy making up different animals, along with learning about each of them too.

I loved the way this book had the half pages so that you could switch animals, it was very cute. It gives basic information about each animal and the pictures are fun to play with

Entertaining, interactive read aloud that lends itself to a fun extension activity where students create their own mixed up animal.

Gr. 2-4. This fun title introduces a rang of animals through poetry, and then lets you mix and match stanzas and their upper and lower bodies to create new (and often hysterical) creatures. The spiral binding makes it easy to shift the upper and lower sections of the page, although the format may not be great for library settings and heavy circulation. Scheffler's illustrations add a lot to the zany nature of the book and each animal has a look of pure mirth gleaming in their eyes. A fun way to ...more

Starting with the question - What crazy creatures will you meet today? - readers are met with 121 possible animal combinations from an ELEPHON (Elephant/Lion) to a WARTELOPE (Warthog/Antelope). The sturdy pages of this spiral bound book are split horizontally, letting readers mix and match the top and bottom halves of 11 safari animals. Silly, nonsensical fun for fostering imagination and phonological awareness.

I loved the nonfiction aspect of this book. Each page is cut in half and on the two page spread you see words on the left and an animal on the right. You can flip a half page to reveal part of the animal and guess. The length makes this for older readers or as a one on one.

Much like its kin, Meeuwissen's "Remarkable Animals," this novelty book is clever, well-put-together, and funny. The rhyming text is a joy for preschoolers. A great addition to anyone's collection.

The girls had so much fun flipping the pictures and creating new animals for me to pronounce!

Great fun to mix and match the tops and bottoms of safari animals. New names are created and dozens of silly pictures are possible. Would be a great gift.
