Publisher Comments:

What do you get when you cross a chicken with spinach?* How about a radish with a shark?** Welcome to the world of scranimals . . . or rather, Scranimal Island— a lush and varied paradise populated by scranimals of all kinds. What do scranimals look like? How do they behave? What do they eat? And how are they observed? In the hands of Jack Prelutsky, the best-selling poet laureate of the elementary school set, and Peter SÍ s, the two-time Caldecott Honor artist, a voyage to Scranimal Island is a voyage of discovery. And when these veteran collaborators send two young explorers (traveling on a yellow scooter, propelled by wheels and the wind) through the pages of their original and surprising picture book, the result is a journey that is thrilling and dangerous and funny and mischievous and memorable and heart-stoppingly beautiful. You’ re welcome to come along, too! *A clutch of spinachickens, fussing in the yard. **The detested radishark.

Synopsis:

In the hands of a bestselling poet laureate and the two-time Caldecott Honor artist, a voyage to Scranimal Island is a voyage of discovery. When these veteran collaborators send two young explorers through the pages of this original and surprising picture book, the result is a journey that is thrilling and dangerous. Full color.

Synopsis:

We're sailing to
Scranimal Island,
It doesn't appear on
most maps....

Scranimal Island
is where you will find
the fragrant RHINOCEROSE,
the cunning BROCCOLIONS.
And if you are really, really lucky
and very, very quiet,
you will spot
the gentle, shy PANDAFFODIL.
(You may even hear it yawning
If the morning's just begun,
Watch its petals slowly open
To embrace the rising sun.

So put on your pith helmet and prepare to explore a wilderness of puns and rhymes where birds, beasts, vegetables, and flowers have been mysteriously scrambled together to create creatures you've never seen before — and are unlikely to meet again! Your guides — Jack Prelutsky, poet laureate of the elementary school set, and two-time Caldecott Honor artist Peter Sis — invite you to join them on an adventure you will never forget!
