KIRKUS REVIEW

In a somewhat human vein, the elephant wishes he could be something else--a bird. By the same token the bird wishes he could be--a fish. And so it goes, round about the evolutionary scale until an ox, the offspring of a lizard's wish, decides he'd rather be an elephant. The minds of the animals lie hidden behind little paper flaps in this intriguing exercise illustrated with the author's vivid colored pictures.
