Beastly Babies

Title:  Beastly Babies

Author:  Ellen Jackson

Illustrator:  Brendan Wenzel


Beastly Babies is a colorful, action-filled book about babies in the animal kingdom and all the ways they can be different from each other. Jackson writes about many members of the animal kingdom, from pouncing baby tigers to ink squirting baby octopi (or octopuses?  If you are wondering about the correct plural of the word octopus, you may like this video from Merriam-Webster:  Watch video.)  Wenzel’s artwork is full of movement and humor, and it works flawlessly with Jackson’s rhyming text.
