  • Ten Times Better

    Richard Michelson, Leonard Baskin

    Hardcover (Marshall Cavendish Children's Books, Sept. 1, 2000)
    "Fiddlesticks! Six? The best? Poppycock!You want TEN TIMES BETTER? Dial a croc.I have SIXTY teeth. I'm a great masticator.(That means I chew first, and ask questions later.)" RICHARD MICHELSON and the late LEONARD BASKIN show that learning to count and to multiply by ten need never be boring! In a counting book like no other, a variety of animals duel for the honor of the number they represent. Backed up by interesting natural history information, the poems are clever, sometimes even preposterous. Bold watercolors convey the animals' conviction that their number is undoubtedly the best! Children will laugh their way along the road to numerical literacy.

  • A Book of Flies Real or Otherwise

    Richard Michelson, Leonard Baskin

    Hardcover (Marshall Cavendish Children's Books, Sept. 11, 1999)
    If an insect can fly, we might think it's a fly and call it a fly, but can it join the club Diptera? That club (scientists call it an "order") is reserved for real flies only-to join, an insect must have six legs and two wings. There are close to 90,000 species of flies. In the witty poems and paragraphs of this enlightening book, you'll discover fantastic flies that exist only in the imagination and fascinating facts about nine real files-and even some non-flies you thought were flies! With a humorous and descriptive mix of poetry and prose, the author exposes several extraordinary variations of this ordinary household pest. Realistic and interpretive drawings mingle on the pages to depict the types of flies you might encounter. It's something to think about the next time you go to swat a fly!
