The originality, humor, and quick energy of the four previous Animagicals have been greeted with enthusiasm--witty paintings on pull-out pages compared and contrasted animals with transportation, patterns, music, and color, while lively verses expanded and elucidated the art. In these current volumes, the author and the artist, in their inimitable styles, have undertaken to explore the worlds of sports and homes: A tennis racquet turns into a beaver, a spiraled shell into a hermit crab. These unlikely combinations make enormous good sense if, like children, you have an open mind, an imaginative eye, and a belief in the power of Animagicals!
