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!

About the Author:

Alison Jay lives in London, England

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2—Jay leads readers on a journey through a fantastical zoo in this wordless picture book. Here, there are no cages, and the animals interact freely with the families and zookeepers roaming the park. The book has numerous mini-stories. Children can follow a family of four, a boy with a penguin balloon, and a couple with a perky French poodle, or simply watch the mischievous animals engage in remarkably humanlike activities. One side of the last spread asks readers: "Now that you've walked through the zoo, can you find...?" and shows cameos for careful observers to spot. The other side challenges perceptive youngsters: "What else can you find?" and asks questions such as "Whose legs are these?" and "Whose lunch is this?" Jay's distinctive crackle-varnished paintings are light and fun. Her colors are soft and her shapes rounded, making the animals as friendly as the stuffed toys on a child's bed. Youngsters will have a grand time tracing the movements of everything from parakeets to pandas.—Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT
