What Animals Really Like
From Library Staff
It's not what you think. A conductor attempts to get his animals groups to duly sing what it is that they really like to do. The problem? These animals are bucking the usual stereotypes. Pretty much worth reading for the skiing shrimp alone.
Monkeys like to play, horses like fresh hay, worms like to wiggle, and warthogs like to . . . blow enormous bubbles? Hilariously detailed watercolors add to the whimsy.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Maestro Herbert Timberteeth has written a brand new song going by the name of “What Animals Really Like”. For this one time performance he has assembled a chorus of some twelve different groups of animals. At the start, all goes according to plan. The lions reluctantly sing, “We are lions, and we like to prowl.” Next a tepid, “We are wolves, and we like to howl.” “We are pigeons, and we like to coo.” Finally, “We are cows, and we like to . . . dig.” There stand the cows holding various digging accoutrements and looking very pleased. Herbert, suffice to say, is not amused. He’s even less amused when the warthogs suddenly declare mid-song that they like to blow enormous bubbles. As the book continues, more and more animals start to sing what they really like to do, rather than what society expects them to. And though it causes him some serious stress, Herbert eventually lets everyone sing what it is that they really like, even though it doesn’t rhyme or, sometimes, make a lot of sense.
