Gr 1-2–This book contains a bizarre mix of stories and poems. Each one features a cute but troublesome animal. A “cutesy-wutesy, itsy-bitsy, chubsy-wubsy” seal runs away from the zoo and goes on a crime spree before being thrown in the slammer. A polar bear antagonizes his agent by eating the other performers on stage with him. Another selection explores the fate of dodos who just don't think. Yanok's cartoon illustrations are colorful and bright. They will be appealing to young children, but much of the humor will be over their heads, and one has to wonder about the snide tone of these cautionary tales.–Loreli E.

"Reiss (The Boy Who Wouldn’t Share) delivers a witty collection of poems and stories that emphasize mischief… The humor is often sophisticated but nonetheless child-friendly…
In cheerful cartoons that recall 1950s animation, newcomer Yanok keeps up with the madcap plots while adding whimsical details of his own."
