Book Review: ‘Never say BOO to a Frilly’ by Margot Finke

Good morning everyone in Bloggerville. Zebee here with another great book review. We have invited Margot Finke back to share her next book in the series about Australian and American animals. Hi Margot! Good to see you again. I’ll turn it over to you. See you at the end.

Hi everyone. Zebee has again invited me to play with him inside his Zoopriseparty-FiestaZoorpresa blog pages. Today I brought "Never say BOO to a Frilly" with me - 3 rhyming tales about cool Aussie critters: The Frillneck Lizard, Rainbow Birds and Tasmanian Devils.

"Never Say BOO" is sure to make Zebee laugh - maybe even giggle!



"Never Say BOO to a Frilly"
Aussie Frillneck Lizards, are they Dinosaurs that live?Or just some wretched lizards with nothing much to give?Without a built in thermostat to regulate their heat. Old Frilly has to wing it - and maybe even cheat.He sits out in the morning sun and soaks up every ray,Then stores that cozy feeling to keep night's chill at bay.
"Rainbow Birds"
Some artist on high must have painted each birdWith paints all so bright that it's almost absurd.There's red that's exotic -- a hot looking tinge,And blue that makes sky color falter and cringe.They're rivaled by shades of green, orange, and pink,A showing so brilliant it makes the sun blink!
"Tasmanian Devil Dance"
So, as you might gather, T.D. has no mates.It's easy to end up on his list of hates.This fierce, ugly creature, fears no man or beast.He's only content when he's gobbling a feast.

Australia is known as The Land Down-Under, and it
has many fascinating animals that are found only on its shores. If Zebee takes you and his Zoo friends over to my website's "Down-Under Fun" page, you can all learn cool new stuff about the Aussie animals in this book.<><><><><><><><><><><>QLIPPITS Are Way Cool:
