On a very Random Island
in the North Atlantic Sea,
some very Random animals
are hiding in the trees…

So begins Ashley Fayth’s delightful nonsense poem in which readers meet a range of “wild and wondrous” beasts—like the sniger, the floose, the squiffin, and the butterflabbit. With its playful rhymes and rollicking rhythm, this book is a perfect read-aloud. Yet even in its silliest moments, The Sniger and the Floose is a gentle reminder to respect and preserve the beauty of the natural world around us, and a joyous celebration of imagination.
