Digio từ Sofiivka, Khersons'ka oblast, Ukraina
I have used this book in a second grade class to inspire the students to make their own mixed up animals. I've used it in a middle school science class to explain how chunks of scientific words have meaning. Finally I've read it just because it has wonderful prose, great pictures and some words I even have to look up in the dictionary. Everyone 3-93 has a wonderful time figuring out what each animal is made up of. I still haven't figured out what the Stormy Petrelephant is supposed to be, but laugh every time when I see his itty bitty little wings that keep him from launching "drppings" from up in the air.
