Fish that fly, butterflies that dance, camels that "trollop along," a tiger that has swallowed the sun: Animals, Animals!
In this commemorative volume, created especially for sharing, Eric Carle celebrates the broadest, liveliest cast of animals yet, illustrating a distinguished collection of poetry and lyrical pieces from sources as diverse as Shakespeare, Japanese haiku, Eugene Field, Lewis Carroll, D. H. Lawrence, Judith Viorst, Ogden Nash, Jack Prelutsky, and X. J. Kennedy.
With brilliant, full-color illustrations that reflect the highest level of artistic excellence, Carle invites the earth's children to glory in the sameness, the difference, and the wonder of the earth's precious animals.
