Come one, come all to the animal masquerade! The lion is going as an elephant, the elephant as a parrot, and the parrot as a turtle! Each costume gives way to another, yielding new surprises on every page, and revealing a menagerie of familiar and unusual animals. Young children will delight in the absurd and amusing images (who wouldn't love a ladybug dressed as a hippopotamus?) and will also appreciate the gags (a fish costumed as a cat is dubbed a ?catfish?) and other bits of silly sweetness. Recapping this reading adventure: a detailed panorama at book's end, showing all the party guests in their fanciful finery.

This book doesn't have much of a story, but it does have a fanciful menagerie of animals dressed up for a masquerade party -- and for little ones who mostly like looking at details in a book's illustrations, it'll be a hit. Lion goes to the big party dressed as an elephant, elephant disguises himself as a parrot, and so on and so on. Featuring a number of animals not often seen in picture books, such as a marmoset, a millipede, and a flamingo, this goofy (and lengthy) parade-on-paper will especially entertain kids who love dressing in costume.
