This cleverly conceived board book appeals to a young child’s sense of fun while providing facts about different animals. A series of impossible but delightful-to-imagine cautionary statements are followed by informative explanations: Don’t take a bath with a pig. It loves wallowing in the mud. Don’t start a food fight with an octopus. It has six more arms than you do. The simplicity and humor in the text and watercolor illustrations make this book a story-time favorite.
