When the National Animal Choir performs the latest song by renowned composer and conductor Mr. Herbert Timberteeth, nothing goes exactly as planned. Mr. Timberteeth has some preconceived notions of what animals like to do that are reflected in his song. But it turns out that lions prefer flower arranging to prowling and shrimp would rather ski than swim! With all the dissension and mayhem, will the show still go on? This hilarious picture book delivers a subtle message about stereotyping that kids, who are so often pigeonholed, will appreciate.
Really quite a fun book. Lots of rhymes meshed with silliness. Could easily open conversations for kiddos into literal animals and their lives as well as their own personal hobbies and activities. Neat way for the beginning and end of the book to open to four full pages to present a stage.
A fun silly picture book.
