The Bewundering World of Bewilderbeests by Bailey Fort takes you on a journey of imagination and creativity. You'll meet animals like the Millipus and watch it toss ships, and meet the Two-headed Mugwump and watch it run everywhere. You'll feel like you really did see the Wide-eyed Oggle staring at you and the Mountain Gloat bragging that he is the fastest. This is a fun, creative book that will have you wondering the real name of each animal. For example, Millipus is really an octopus with a million tentacles. I had fun guessing what each animal really was. This guessing game adds interest and interactivity. You'll feel like you watched the Pygmy Jagumar hunt for her food and heard the Red and Ruffled Liddigator argue late into the night.
I loved The Bewundering World of the Bewilderbeests by Bailey Fort. It is a great book for anyone who wishes to escape reality into a made-up land. The Bewundering World of Bewilderbeests is one of my favorite picture books. I think that Bailey Fort’s illustrations were very creative and imaginative. I liked how the type wasn't straight; instead it curved and spiraled to match the fun theme of the book. I found myself guessing what the animal really was and where it got its name. Bailey Fort writes in a rhyme, adding music to the page and making the words sing. The well-drawn illustrations were simple with the animal the focus of the picture. The illustrations were colorful and happy. I reread this book several times because it was so good. I very highly recommend The Bewundering World of Bewilderbeests.
