What happens when you cross a tiger and an elephant or a crocodile and a zebra? Well, first you get a critter that looks rather funny and, second, the new hybrid has a new name.

So imagine an animal named a eleger which means it has an elephant's front with a trunk and big ears and and tiger's back with a long tail, a stripped coat and furry paws.

Young readers will be able to mix and match seven wild animals to create some very odd looking critters with equally strange names. This sturdy board book opens to the left and right for easy manipulation by little hands. Mix and match to your heart's delight as you enjoy this odd collection of animals, created with the flip of a page!
