The Lovereading4Kids comment

A delicious joke which sees all kinds of babies ending up with all kinds of parents who are not their own! When the world tips…the grass-chewing cow gets a meat-eating lion cub, the super-fast cheetah gets a sloth for a babe while the owl who only closes her eyes at dawn gets a noisy rooster chick with quite a different view of the world. Luckily there is a happy ending – mostly!

Once when the world tipped upside down, The earth went blue and the sky went brown. All the baby animals tumbled out of bed And ended up with very funny mums instead...

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
