Animal Soup by Todd H. Doodler

What do you get when you mix a bird and a turtle? A birdle of course! What about a gorilla and a pelican? A gorillican?

In Todd H. Doodler's Animal Soup, kids can see the funny results of combining two animals that have very few similarities. Animals are presented on a two-page spread, and when you lift a flap on the right-hand side of the spread, you see the mixed-up animal.

My three-year-old's response to the "squale" (squirrel + whale)? "Oh dear, that's a silly animal."

The sturdy cardboard pages makes this a fun choice for young children.
