"Perfect for animal lovers, with gorgeous illustrations worthy of framing."
Kirkus Reviews

First the animals were stealing names and now the plants are doing it too! The second book in Dennis McGregor's acclaimed series features vibrant, hand-painted illustrations and curious questions like "Why does the crab apple share its name with the crab?"

You Stole My Name Too features another amazing collection of illustrations that takes you and your child on a colorful journey through nature's most fascinating plants and animals and their namesakes.

The fun pairs of flora and fauna that are featured in this sequel include:
• Chick and Chickpea
• Cat and Catnip
• Dog and Dogwood
• Hedgehog and Hedgehog Cactus
• And many more!

A beautiful "children's coffee-table-art book" for all ages, You Stole My Name Too is a clever, creative follow-up to You Stole My Name, a perfect book series for parents and children to read and enjoy together.

"The museum-quality artwork in this oversized coffee-table style volume is big and beautiful, the verses are clever and funny, but it's the concept behind You Stole My Name that is unique, original, and sets it apart from all other pet and wildlife picture book collections for young children."
Midwest Book Review
