Ackamarackus: Julius Lester's Sumptuously Silly Fantastically Funny Fables

written by Julius Lester, illustrated by Emilie Chollat

Crazy things happen in these very funny and fun-to-read-out-loud stories. A bee falls in love with a bluebird. An alligator decides to leave the swamp for cooler waters up in Vermont. And an eagle is afraid of heights. And, as is usually the case with fables, these silly stories have silly morals to go along with them, too.
