: Join in on a lively look into the animal world. Twenty-two original stories and poems by Caldecott-winning artists Alice and Martin Provensen take you on a merry romp through farmyard, zoo, and forest. Here you will visit the barber for a lion's hair-cut, meet a tiger having a very unhappy birthday (no one is brave enough to come to his party!), and outsmart a wily fox. There is even useful and humorous advice, including "How to Recognize a Wolf in the Forest" and "How to Sleep Through the Winter." And, of course, all of these poems and tales are surrounded by the authors' engaging and ingenious art. Full of fun and imagination, this remarkable collection is sure to enthrall and delight all ages--a wonderful addition to any storytime.
