KIRKUS REVIEW

Dripping and dabbling in dingy, dark water,/ ducks dispense with daintiness./ No dandified ducks--too damp!/ Ducks desire drizzly days."" Page after dull sandbeige and olive-green page, Hilgartner grinds out her alliterative utterances about large, lordly lion; ravenous ring-tailed raccoon; prim penguins; silky, shining, sleek seals; and too many others. The entire belabored entry for camels reads ""Camels act contentious, cantankerous, and combative, if crossed;/But consistent concerned care can create cooperation conducive to capable, competent conveying of cargo and kings."" Wretched.
