Do penguins like people? Who's the boss - a big rabbit or a little cat? Can your pet elephant do homework? Why do sea otters break stuff? Which is ickier, cobwebs or spider webs? Could you live on dog food? In Upside-Down Jellies, kids ages 8 to 12 can find answers to all these questions. The book's 28 animal poems are rhymed and unrhymed, short and long, silly and serious. The animals include pets, backyard visitors, wild critters, and others. All the poems have vibrant, lively illustrations by Canadian artist Tina Modugno. For kids who like poetry and those who don't, here's a collection to make poems more fun. And as a bonus, kids will know what to do if they ever accidentally catch a skunk!
