The Lovereading4Kids comment

Full of wit and delight, this flap book gives readers the chance to create creatures that are half-cow half-pig, half-hen and half-sheep or any other kind of combination out of the 121 on offer. Familiar to all readers of The Gruffalo, Axel Scheffler’s animals are humorously adapted and the comic rhyming text adds to the enjoyment.

A Piece of Passion from Camilla Reid - Editorial Director, Nosy Crow
“Boy, this book makes me giggle! I love the weird animals you create when
you swap their tops and bottoms – they’re like friendly heraldic beasts – and
the odd names that are made as a result: it all just tickles me! Happily, my
five-year-old shares my sense of humour and, having just started reading, she
loves to have a go at reading the strange names too.”

Synopsis

Axel Scheffler's Flip Flap Farm by Axel Scheffler

What do you get if you cross a pig with a turkey? Why, that would be a purkey! And a sheep with a rabbit? That would be a shabbit, of course! A very silly but absolutely compelling book that will charm the whole family. My fleece is fluffy, soft and white - it's used to make warm wool. And when the farmer shears it off, you might get three bags full!
