Críticas

Humorous poems describe animals that missed the ark, such as the Wakeupworld, Sleepamitemore, and the Ha-Ha-Ha. Each poem teaches a moral lesson, and the tone is coy. Dark scratchboard illustrations add little to the book. Category: Nonfiction. 1991 (orig. 1940), Macmillan, 95pp.. Ages 9 to 12. Rating: 4: Recommended, with minor flaws. Horn Book (The Horn Book Guide, 1991)
