A zoo book that reinvents how we look at animals
When you visit at the zoo,
Do you wonder like I do . . .
Why does a giraffe have spots of brown,
And do zebra’s stripes go up, or down?
The wonder and variety of zoo animals is explored in this book, which is as full of questions as Kipling’s Elephant’s Child. From an elephant to a peacock, a rhinoceros to a flamingo, an inquisitive child and his grandfather visit and ponder each animal.
‘An outing as ordinary as a visit to the zoo is an imaginative adventure for grandfather and grandchild in this whimsical picture book. The playful, slightly offbeat rhyme complements Grandpa’s quirky questions. […] This simple but delightful book will affirm and inspire curious young readers who prefer to imagine a more light-hearted world than the one we really live in.’Booklist
