Five creatures

Book Cover
Average Rating
Frances Foster Books,
Pub. Date:
1st ed.
Three humans and two cats Five creatures live in our house. Three humans, and two cats. Three short, and two tall. Four grownups, and one child (that's me!). In this book of lighthearted comparisons, simple text and warm pictures work together to depict various scenes in a happy household where each member is distinct but also has something inn common with one or more of the others. The fun comes from sorting out the similarities and the differences.   Five Creatures is a 2001 Boston Globe - Horn Book Award Honor Book for Picture Books.
