An Ambush of Tigers
A Wild Gathering of Collective NounsBook - 2015
Have you ever heard of a prickle of porcupines? Or a tower of giraffes? What about a parcel of penguins? This fun-filled romp through the animal kingdom introduces collective nouns for animals through wordplay. Clever rhymes and humorous illustrations bring these collective nouns to life in funny ways, making it easy to remember which terms and animals go together. A glossary in the back matter offers further explanation of words used as collective nouns, such as sleuth meaning "detective."

Colourful images illustrate some terrific wordplay as readers are introduced to the many names used for groups of animals. The illustrations sometimes reveal how odd the names really are.
