“If anything ever goes wrong at the zoo, you can send the zebras to my house,” Leslie tells the zebra keeper. She also invites the monkeys and the elephants. None of them ever comes--until one wet, stormy night when the zoo floods and the zebra keeper remembers Leslie’s offer. “It’s a simple, enticing idea, gracefully and logically developed by this new author and ably abetted by Dyer’s watercolors. . . . A real charmer.”--Kirkus Reviews
