Enjoy this hilarious book of puns featuring animals in goofy scenarios. Simple text and creative illustrations come together to create a simple story time read that will keep children laughing.
Mae Q. Howell is the pseudonym of an author who loves to make her readers laugh. As a big fan of puns, she has always wondered why hedgehogs insist on not sharing their hedges and why fairytales have a tendency to dragon. So when she was given the opportunity to create a series that involves punny animals, it was an absolute dream come true! Mae intends on writing as many punny books as she can. She just hopes you don't think they are tearable.
