In comical rhymes, the author gives easy-to-take nonsense advice on how to bost get along with members of the animal kingdom. Each of her creatures is content to be bothered in bizarre ways (e.g., skunks enjoy being draped in Spanish lace). The exception is clearly indicated by her direct warning: But never tease a weasel This is very good advice. A weasel will not like it. And teasing isn't nice. Brightly colored, spontaneously drawn animals sit or stand beside the rhymes -- which will be automatically memorized by many listeners.
