We loved the silly animal creations in this story.
We had a go at making our own Tizzle Topped Tufted Mazurka from Yerka.
We used vivid, pastels and dye to create our own creature with a very long neck!
This is the passage from the story that we based our art on.
“ I’ll go to the African island of Yerka
And bring back a
tizzle-topped Tufted Mazurka
A kind of canary with quite a tall throat.
His neck is so long, if he swallows an oat
For breakfast the first day of April, they say
It has to go down such a very long way
That it gets to his stomach the fifteenth of May.”
