What's Who Can? About

Publisher Summary

Tongue-twisty teasers lead the reader through a miscellany of animals in this brilliantly illustrated hint-and-reveal book. Careful clues invite the child to guess what’s coming next, and rhythm and repetition invite early readers to try out this little riddle book on their own. From toucan to centipede, all will delight in Vlasta van Kampen’s colorful art and Charles Ghigna’s whimsical words.

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.0 / 7.0

The concept with wordplay is nice (“Who stirs the wheel in their playground? Who stirs? Hamster!)and the illustrations are well-executed, but the book as a whole really didn’t do much for me.
