Animals Should Definitely Not Act Like People

Illustrated by Ron Barrett

About The Book

Animals should definitely not act like people.
...because it would be foolish for a fish, so silly for a sheep, and preposterous for a panda -- as Ron Barrett's wonderfully detailed drawings show.
This book will show children a new way of looking at animals and people, even as they laugh.
