From the author of the popular Doggy Ditties from A to Z, inspiration for this new set of quirky rhymes and catchy ditties comes from weird and wonderful creatures from all over the globe.
Featuring some of the world's more unusual animals - from aardvark to zebus - along with New Zealand favourites - kiwi, tuatara and weta feature in the poems. A non-fiction section at the end, with information about the featured animals and tips for writing poetry, will ensure the book is popular with teachers while offering more for enquiring children.
