Flip Flap Safari by Nosy Crow- ESSENTIAL

Crow, Nosy Flip Flap Safari.  Illustrated by Axel Scheffler. Candlewick Press, 2015. $11.99.  Picture Book/ Flip Book.  Content: G. Have you ever come across a Flamant? How about a Wartaffe? You will in this incredibly ingenious flip flat safari book!  When you read about a Zebra and turn over the top of the page, you get a Wartra- half Warthog, half Zebra.  Each page includes the illustration of the safari animal along with a detailed description of that particular animal.  The text is in rhyme with perfect pattern and rhythm. We enjoyed this informational book that turns into humorous fun with the simple turn of a page. We loved this book!  Pre-K.  EL (K-3). ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: SL.
