Format: Hardcover
Absolutely delightful. Clever and funny, and the pictures are ridiculous. Some of the best rhymes I've ever read out loud.

A Kid's Review on December 13, 2003
Format: Hardcover
When I saw this book in the bookstore, I knew it would be good. Some of the things I didn't get at first, but my parents told me. When I reached that point, I found the humor in each one.
"On a bump beside a road
Sits a lowly Potatoad,
Obviously unaware
Of its own existence there."
This is a great read for all ages, despite complicated and hard-to-understand animals like the Stormy Petrelephant and the Cardinalbacore. I strongly suggest you should read this book.

I read this book to my kids when they were younger and they loved it. Now I have a grandson I've begun reading it to him also. When I hear my children reading to him they read it in exactly the same way. Love it. Them feels.

Jack Prelutsky has created yet another treasure of a book that is truly silly but certainly not shallow! Youngsters will most likely need this book to be read to them since the vocabulary is a bit elevated (verdant, acrobatic, accelerates, meander, languorous, etc.). Of course, with creature names like "rhinocerose" and "antelopetunia", even adults may need to give this a read-thru before attempting the names out loud! Especially fun are the mangorilla and the orangutangerine who cavort through the jungle and are rarely seen.

Sis' mostly monochromatic illustrations are surprisingly exciting and help the reader to really understand these strange animal and animal/plant (especially fruit and vegetable) hybrid creatures. The back cover is further help to decipher these scranimals' imaginative origins and may inspire youngsters to come up with some combinations of their own.

This is a book that I delight in reading over and over - something I can't say for most books. The rhymes are fun and imaginative and flow naturally. The vocabulary used is adult and lends depth to the images. The illustrations are fascinating and relaxing with their dense patterns, quiet colors, and wide vistas. My daughter, who is six, loves the book and I imagine she will love it for many years. Scranimals is a classic. It will definitely get passed down to future generations of our family.

If I was allowed to I would give this book more stars. Growing up, this was one of my favorite books (I am currently in my mid-teen years using my guardian's account to write this), and I am so happy to have found it again. Typing "children's book about island of animal/plant hybrids" surprisingly will not get you far. At last I finally was led to this page.

The word play is quite witty, and it was very enjoyable to learn to read by myself using this book. The pronunciation key (I believe this book has it if I'm not mistaken?) was very helpful when understanding how sounds are the same and different.

The book is fun to read, and I would recommend anyone with a child this book, no matter the interests.

My son checked this book out of his school library so many times, we decided to purchase it here. He can't get enough of it. It is adorable, clever, and inspires him to create his own combinations. Love it!

This book is one of the best children's books I've seen, and I've read a lot. The art is very well done, the idea of the animals creative, smart, and fun. My son is almost 15 and we still talk about it once in a while, especially when we make up our own Scranimals. I would have never have spotted this in main stream book shopping...we saw the book and met the illustrator at an event and had to have it. Wonderful add to your kid's library!
