If you like silly poems and imaginary animals, then this is the book for you. Scranimal Island is a dreamy mountainous island inhabited by fantastic animals that are clever and silly. Most of them are a combination of fruit, vegetables and flowers. They include the Potatoad that has eyes on its coarse and warty hide, the Radishark with its sharp fangs and astonishing red bulbous body or the unappealing Bananaconda that slithers on its belly and sheds its slinky skin. To learn more about all these Scranimals as well as the Broccolions, the Hippopotamushorroms, the Camelberta Peaches, the Avocadodos and many others, be sure to check out Scranimals!  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2005-2006)
