Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant and Other Poems

Out of stock
What do you get when you cross a toaster with a toad? Pop-up Toadsters that "hop and hop, / Then startlingly, abruptly stop / And place in slots atop their heads / Fresh slices of assorted breads." Seventeen poems introduce a wild assortment of never-before-seen creatures, all combinations of inanimate objects and animals. Bizarre Alarmadillos have trouble sleeping; shoehornets help get shoes on, but watch out, they sting!; and the Clocktopus's tentacles move "in tempo / With the clock upon its face." Full-color collage illustrations bring the imaginary-and imaginative-critters to life.
