Say What? by Angela DiTerlizzi and Joey Chou

Every kid and parent out there probably knows this by heart: cows say ‘Moo’; sheep say ‘Baa’; three singing pigs say ‘La la la’. *Yawn* Oh wait, that’s from Sandra Boynton’s Moo, Baa, La La La. But you get the gist: everyone seems to have gotten their animal sounds down pat — of course pigs say ‘oink’! Don’t they?

Giving a refreshing spin to the usual preconceived notions about animal sounds is Say What?, a strikingly original book that challenges these almost universally agreed-upon sounds and proposes the possibility that *gasp* just maybe, these animals have been misunderstood all along, and that what we believed were mere ‘animal sounds’ could have been meaningful words all along!

Coupled with wacky illustrations that complement the smoothly rhyming text and hilariously plausible (with some imagination) interpretations/translations of what animals could really be saying, this delightful book is sure to bring on the chuckles and make everyone think twice about what they think they know and hear.
