Cats, dogs, turtles, emus — there's a place and poem in SIDNEY'S ANIMAL RESCUE STORE for every kind of critter. Meet heavy metal cockatoos who like to rock and roll, snooty llamas speaking French, alley cats with attitude, and even a batch of baby alligators. Kids will tweet, howl or hiss along to the romping rhythms of Liz Swados' poems and the colorful fun of Anne's Wilson's illustrations.
