Animal Snackers

Betsy Lewin

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

The ostrich eyes with eager glint
a stone-his after-dinner mint.
It is a snack that he must swallow
so indigestion does not follow.

A Classic about animals' favorite treats-
republished with all new illustrations

We all know that animals never eat at tables, and they don't eat the same treats as we do, but where and what do animals eat? Well, tick birds eat on the backs of rhinos. And platypuses?

Do you know what porcupines eat? Find out that and more in Betsy Lewin's whimsical account of the eating habits of some exotic creatures.
