Animal Fair

Anthony Browne. Candlewick Press (MA), $14.99 (16pp) ISBN 978-0-7636-1831-5

Anthony Browne takes on the lyrics of Animal Fair: A Spectacular Pop-Up with equal gusto. Readers first spy what appears to be a run-of-the-mill carousel, but a pull of the tab reveals ""The birds and the beasts were there"" (riding on the backs of the people). A big baboon combs his hair by the light of the (outhouse) moon and a monkey meanders the midway.
