Animal Crackers Fly the Coop by Kevin O'Malley

In a companion to his New York Times bestseller, Gimme Cracked Corn and I Will Share, O'Malley has once again mastered the art of wordplay and penmanship. Turning the Grimm's The Brementown Musicians on its funny bone, O'Malley has revised the classic story of four animals who part ways with their respective farmers to explore their artistic sides, this time sending them in search of belly laughs ...and a great location for a comedy club. When they foil a band of robbers using their joke-telling talents, the animals-including one determined comedi-hen-finally prove they can kill the crowd with laughter.


Praise for Animal Crackers Fly the Coop : A Spring 2010 IndieBound Next Pick . School Library Journal's Best Books of the Year . A Chicago Public Library Best of the Best Book . Clever, well executed, and loaded with laughs. School Library Journal, starred review With a high joke-per-page ratio, this is, as Hen would say, an 'udderly' 'egg-straordinary' 'bawk Booklist
