Synopsis

What Animals Really Like by Fiona Robinson

When the National Animal Chorus gathers to perform the immortal works of Mr. Herbert Timberteeth, the performance doesn't go exactly as planned. Mr. Timberteeth has some preconceived notions of what animals like to do that are reflected in his songs, but it turns out that lions prefer flower-arranging to prowling and shrimp would rather ski than swim! With all the dissension and mayhem, will the show still go on? This hilarious picture book delivers a subtle message about stereotyping that kids, who are so often pigeon-holed themselves, will appreciate.
