The best part about 1 Zany Zoo has to be the illustrations. Colin Jack’s exciting pictures bring to mind Disney favorites, most especially the Banks’ children’s journey into the magical paintings in Mary Poppins. Children will enjoy counting the different animals in this book as well as looking for the mischievous fox that has stolen the zookeeper’s keys. (He appears in every panel–in some form or fashion.)
Any young reader getting ready to visit the zoo should definitely check out this charming book. It would be fun to hear what they think zoo animals do while no one is watching!
