If you could have any animal's tongue, whose would you choose?
What if you woke up one morning and your tongue wasn't yours? What If You Had an Animal Tongue!? -- the next imaginative book in the What If You Had series -- explores what would happen if you looked in the mirror and saw an animal's tongue instead of your own! From a Komodo dragon's split, yellow tongue (which can detect food from five miles away) to a woodpecker's long, thorny tongue (used to dig into trees for food), discover what it would be like if you had these special tongues -- and find out why your tongue is just the right one for you!
