Title: Zany Zoo
Author: William Wise
Illustrator: Lynn Munsinger
Publisher: Walter Lorraine Books
Ages: 4-8




Welcome to the Zany Zoo!
An unusual bunch in here,
It’s true,
But if fun and silliness are
What you seek,
Turn the pages, take a peek…


Why you should read it:


What kid (or adult for that matter) doesn’t enjoy visiting animals at the zoo? Young readers will be in for a huge surprise when they turn the pages to discover the delightful antics from the menagerie of animals hiding within the pages of Mr. Wise’s engaging book. You can meet Carlotta the Cow or even Wally the Whale as well as a multitude of other creatures all featured in this children’s book featuring kid-friendly poetry.

Ms. Munsinger’s vibrant illustrations are a whimsical backdrop to the fun poems and I wouldn’t be surprised if some readers don’t join in the fun come party time!
