About the book
When the National Animal Choir performs the latest song by renowned composer and conductor Mr. Herbert Timberteeth, nothing goes exactly as planned. Mr. Timberteeth has some preconceived notions of what animals like to do that are reflected in his song. But it turns out that lions prefer flower arranging to prowling and shrimp would rather ski than swim! With all the dissension and mayhem, will the show still go on? This hilarious picture book delivers a subtle message about stereotyping that kids, who are so often pigeonholed, will appreciate.

"Robinson's story will keep children giggling at the beaver’s frustrated reactions and the animals’ unpredictable preferences. Encore!"

"Guffaws and surprising twists will have youngsters clamoring for a repeat performance. Brava!"
