Review by

This collection is packed with comical images and fun rhymes. The humor is at times more mature and pointed (Colonel Fleming is a lemming having difficulty leading his troops, and the tortoise lawyer is an ambulance chaser). However most are very age-appropriate and quite silly and fun to read (Hippo-uh-oh has to potty).

Review by

I love the crawings by Ron Searle in Beastly Feasts. The poetry for children is good, but not great. It was the cover art that attracted me and kept me involved in the book. It's worth it just for that.
