Have you ever seen a chicken’s bum dance?
Or an elephant’s bum lay an egg?
This cute novelty offering gives youngsters the chance to explore these and plenty of other silly combinations. Pages are split horizontally so that the top half of each animal’s body can be mixed with the bottom half of others. The left side of each spread features simple text – the top half naming each animal – Frog’s bum…, Pig’s bum.. and so on – and the bottom half saying what the opposite bottom does – …swims in the pond, dances to a tune and so on – so that each animal can be matched with the text and picture of each other animal’s bottom.
This is a simple yet humorous concept which will entertain prereaders and early readers, with the possibility of creating 40 combinations. The illustrations are bright and humourous.
A fun offering.
