Picken: Mix and Match the Farm Animals!/Mary Murphy

Brand: Candlewick Press (MA)

Description Mix and match the front and back of farm animals to create funny new species If you could cross a calf with a chicken, would that be a cacken? How on earth do you make a chiglet? Would a kippy satisfy folks who love kittens and puppies? With this inventive book, children are invited to flip the pages to make outlandish creatures with silly hybrid names. Featuring boldly colored, simply shaped animals ready to be mixed up again and again, these sturdy board-book pages open to the left and the right for easy manipulation by little hands.
