Abstract
Fifty pages of animal rap poems. What they have in common is animal subjects treated with an attitude of whimsy. Most are not stories. Several are stories, and come at least close to being fables. The Bumbling Bear (12) presents a bear who gets the hibernation cycle wrong until he eats some donuts and wants to go back to sleep for the winter instead of his usual summer. The House Mouse (37) bustles around preparing a party, invites kittens, and ends up being part of the menu. Temptation (45) presents a bear who steals honey-buns, leaves them outside his door to cool off, and is then enraged that someone steals them from him. One of the best of the other poems is The Snowbird and the Bear (37). Perhaps the best of the black-and-white illustrations is Camouflage (18).
