In Zoo Nonsense, Author Don Clifford and Illustrator Olga Cruhm have combined their talents to create a wonderful alphabet learning aid that children, parents and grandparents alike will enjoy! Fun with words and how they can be twisted into off-the-wall sentences is the hallmark of Don Clifford’s Zoo Nonsense. The easy to remember limerick style of poetry adds to the overall enjoyment of reading Clifford’s wacky poems. Olga Cruhm’s artistry adds a visual treat and in many instances is just as wacky as the poetry.
