Synopsis

What are your favorite animals? Dogs? Cats? Bugs and tarantulas? Or perhaps you prefer the jungle residents: leopards, crocodiles, lions? How do you feel about dolphins? Porcupines? Are you scared by werewolves and creepy-crawlies? Or would you rather have anteaters, vultures, and pterodactyls?
In this collection of poems you will find something about every kind of animal you can think of--and some you'd sooner not think of. Read about pets at the vets, be it hamsters with headaches, fish with the flu, and crocodiles with toothache. Meet Beryl the budgie and the little plastic cyberpet. Hang out with Solomon, the deep-thinking, unwinking, cream-lapping, mouse-trapping, nit-picking, fur-licking, magical kind of cat. And don't forget to check on those whales in the bathtub. All the verses are illustrated with uproarious color drawings, the product of Korky Paul's wild imagination.
