Michael Garland is the illustrator of many books for children, including Leah's Pony by Elizabeth Friedrich. He lives in Patterson, New York.From School Library Journal:
PreS-K-During a boring night at the zoo, the animals decide to break out and have an adventure. After the seals collect change from the bottom of their pool and the monkeys snatch the keys, the creatures raid the Lost and Found and don colorful hats and shirts. They board a bus and head for town, where they have dinner at a French restaurant and end with a night of dancing at Club Boogie. Garland's palette includes electric reds, blues, and greens that contrast nicely against the dark night. However, the electronically drawn animals appear fuzzy and unclear on some pages, yet their plaid-patterned shirts and printed ties stand out sharply on others. One wordless spread emphasizes the frenzy at the dance club. Although the illustrations are sometimes intriguing, readers will find the rhyming text and predictable plot pedestrian. Stick with Margret and H. A. Rey's "Curious George" books (Houghton) or Peggy Rathmann's Good Night, Gorilla (Putnam, 1994) for real monkey business.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
