Synopsis

Where would animals reside
...if they could decide?

A house that suits a polar bear?
Some place with very central air.

Where would a flamingo go?
She'd go to a flamingolow!

A rabbit's digs?
A garden apartment with walls of twigs.

J. Patrick Lewis's delightfully clever verse and Lisa Desimini's bright, imaginative artwork will spark children's laughter -- and their imaginations.
