Lemmings don't really jump off of cliffs, right? That's what've we learned from all the latest scientific research, right?! Well, these lemmings haven't read the right book of scientific research, so they don't know any better. They jump off of cliffs and, really, anything -- so they constantly need saving! Cute and funny, this picture book delights page to page with its wacky premise and pictures. Read the book, humans!

The team behind the New York Times bestselling Wolfie the Bunny and Horrible Bear is back with with new Arctic characters in this hilarious learning-to-read adventure Aboard the S.S. Cliff, First Mate Foxy reads an interesting fact: "Lemmings don't jump off cliffs." But Foxy can't get the lemmings on the Cliff to read his book, too. They're too busy jumping off. After a chilly third rescue, exasperated Foxy and grumbly polar bear Captain PB realize their naughty nautical crew isn't being stubborn: The lemmings (Jumper, Me Too, and Ditto) can't read. And until Foxy patiently teaches his lemmings to read the book, he can't return to reading it, either.
