What do the animals at the zoo do when the gates close at night? They boogie until dawn! This bouncy, funny read-aloud is filled with an assortment of animals dancing to their own beat and celebrating their individuality. See the flamingos do the fandango, the elephants cha-cha-cha, and the little penguins break-dance as they all avoid being discovered by the zookeeper, and then turn the page to see everyone come together in one unforgettable conga line! Kids will be dancing and moving as they read along with Sujean Rim's irresistible cast of animal characters that fills every page. It all culminates in a surprise orientation shift that reveals an unforgettable finale!

Praise For Zoogie Boogie Fever! An Animal Dance Book

Praise for Zoogie Boogie Fever!

"Rim's exuberant, mixed-media illustrations combine splashy watercolors, cut and torn paper, and photo collage, all in appropriately robust and colorful hues...will have little readers doing free-form boogies of their own."

Praise for Birdie's Big-Girl Shoes written and illustrated by Sujean Rim:

"The drawings retain a trendy fashion feel through an emphasis on spare lines and heavy patterns, but the playfulness of the details...heightens the appeal for those yearning for more sophistication than what’s offered by Jane O’Connor’s Fancy Nancy. [Birdie's] conclusion...seems a fine, age-appropriate response, an antidote to any undue expectations that childhood be rushed through. How refreshing." -- Booklist

"The bold, stylized watercolor and collage illustrations, paired with spare, simple text, are set against ample white space and burst with bright, attractive textile patterns." -- School Library Journal
