A madcap menagerie of animal group names. They say that birds of a feather flock together. But who knew that bears in a group are called a sleuth? Eagle-eyed author Diane Swanson knew. In a book that's both funny and fascinating, Swanson explores 11 animals and the collective nouns that describe them. Many terms are a perfect fit. A leap of leopards certainly evokes images of these acrobatic cats. And you can't help but look up to a tower of giraffes. But would you have guessed that many pheasants make up a bouquet? Other animal groupings include: - An army of caterpillars - A pride of lions - A bed of clams - A raft of ducks - A gang of elk Each playful profile reveals a term's origins and describes the behavior and characteristics of the animal. Meanwhile, delightful illustrations capture the literal connection to each intriguing name. A Crash of Rhinos, A Party of Jays is sure to intrigue young animal enthusiasts and budding language lovers alike.
