A lyrical and beautifully illustrated picture book exploring the creativity of collective nouns in the animal kingdom.

Highly detailed, whimsical illustrations invite both the child and the adult reader to delight in the imagery suggested by a parliament of owls, a kaleidoscope of butterflies, a bed of sloths, and more! The book ends with an imaginative challenge: after learning about so many wild possibilities, what might you decide to call a group of yourself?
