A whimsical book that teaches the reader about a variety of different animals, even those that don't live in the jungle. The book itself is die cut into the shape of a seated tiger. Each page features several beautiful colorful illustrations of multiple animal with accompanying rhyming text for each animal. The animals pictured and described within the book are: bears, camels, alligators, deer, hippopotamuses, kangaroos, elephants, giraffes, quicca possums, rhinos, sea lions, tigers, monkeys, lions, ostriches, porcupines, vultures, walruses, yaks, and zebras. An example of one of the rhyming texts for the animal is: "Out for a sunning and an airing is this old Rhinoceros; Beware his ugly temper, for he is always cross! But though he is so spiteful, he has a friend - how queer, A little bird who tells him when any danger's near." It appears as though this book was a part of the series, as written on an interior page is "Saalfield's Cut-Out Picture Books", with a list of the three other books in the series: "The Owl and the Bee", "Topsy Tabbykins" and "Little Froggie Green". It is unclear how this book is a cut out book though, since this pages are double sided, and if you cut out one animal, you would ruin the illustration of the animal on the backside. 16. pages. Die cut covers into the shape of a tiger. Staple bindings. OCLC 0 (Apr 2020, does have earlier versions) Measures 10 3/4" x 6".
