  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy | 5/28/2013

    " I love all of Jack Prelutsky's poems. This book is one my favorites. Not only are the poems wonderful but the illustrator, Carin Berger, does a great job depicting the make-believe animals such as zipperpotamuses and alarmadillos. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 La'shae | 5/18/2013

    " I loved this book! The immense amount of rich vocabulary is great for introducing students to new words. I love the whimsical nature of the book. The animals are made up of very unusual items and described much different from what you would ever imagine. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrs Bond | 11/14/2012

    " Prelutsky combines animals and inanimate objects to create silly new animals. Love the collage illustrations. I plan to figure out a way to make my own Clocktopus for the library... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 10/18/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Christensen | 4/9/2012

    " 4.5 stars Fun Fun Fun. The book would be a great writing prompt for students to make up their own poems, combining two unrelated things (e.g., an umbrella and an elephant). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marcus | 2/16/2012

    " The created words could be problematic, but affords decoding practice. Could be a way to compare poetry types, but don't expect young readers to "get it." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Micah | 10/23/2011

    " I LOVED this fun, light-hearted book of poems! Each poem is about a creation one would find by combining an animal with an everyday household object. The entire book is full of imagination and creativity through both text and illustration. It's definitely a book children would enjoy! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aurora | 10/21/2011

    " I generally do not enjoy poetry but this book is the exception to the rule. I bought it as a bedtime book for my stepson and he enjoys it just as much as I do. Reminds me very strongly of The Ice Cream Cone Coot and Other Rare Birds that I used to love to read as a kid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dolly | 6/1/2011

    " Funny poems creating whimsical animals that are part thing/part animal; the poems are reminiscent of Shel Silverstein. Our girls loved the word play, the illustrations and the fun, rhyming poems. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Whitney | 9/11/2008

    " A clever approach to poetry. Very creative and fun to read. It might be difficult for younger students to read all of the words (like umbrellaphant), so the teacher may want to read aloud. "
