Picks and Pans Review: Curious Creatures in Peculiar Places

UPDATED 01/08/1990 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 01/08/1990 at 01:00 AM EST

Among the colorful beasts poet-illustrator Amy Goldman Koss celebrates are the meerkat, auk and, of course, the duckbill platypus. Notes Koss in verse: "The platypus is delicate/And not the type to roam/She can't adapt to life in zoos/Or live away from home." (Price Stern Sloan, $8.95—ages 6-10)
