KIRKUS REVIEW

 In generous, Mother-Goose-style format, more than 100 verses, mostly traditional but including a few by the likes of Lear and Belloc. Animals are featured here, creatively grouped by species or bizarre behavior. Clark's witty illustrations are just right--her round-eyed characters are amazed observers of their own antics, the serene watercolor backgrounds make an ironic contrast to the lively action. A delightful compilation, handsomely presented. Index. (Poetry/Picture book. 3-8)
