In this fanciful visit, Alison Jay summons her unique perspective and sense of humor to create a zoo like no other?where more than just the animals are on display. Children will delight in discovering small details and tracking narratives that play out bit by bit. Before the tour is over, kids will meet hippos, giraffes, penguins pursuing a platter of fish, exotic birds, bears, mischievous monkeys, and much more.
There?s a search-and-find element too: The last spread invites readers to go back and discover a number of amusing details throughout the book. With so much to explore, children are sure to?as the sign at the end proclaims?come again soon!
