Ice Cream Cone Worm. Monkeyface Prickleback. Pink Fairy Armadillo. You're called WHAT?!Welcome to the Ministry of Silly Animal Names where all the creatures have one thing in common: they want to change their names. A unique and rip-roaringly funny, tongue-twisting story full of weird and wonderful real creatures and facts at the end that will amaze. Written by Kes Gray, the bestselling, award-winning author of Oi Frog! and illustrated with charm and wit by dazzling new talent, Nikki Dyson.
What’s the most ridiculous animal name you can think of? Is it as crazy as the Tasselled Wobbegong? The Fried Egg Jellyfish? Or even the Bone-Eating Snot Flower Worm? Animals from all around the world have formed a long, long line at the Ministry of Silly Names. They’re fed up with their crazy names, and intend to change them!
Author of the equally mad and humorous Oi Frog series, Kes Gray is back with “You’re Called What?!”. It’s paired with Nikki Dyson’s bright illustrations of the mysterious Ah Ha Wasp and Monkeyface Prickleback, and continues the wacky storytelling style of Oi Frog, Oi Dog and Oi Cat.
The outrageous names will have kids guessing whether the animals are real or not. But there’s a handy explanation section on the last page with photos and facts that prove their existence.
