The Lovereading4Kids comment
This deliciously imaginative night time adventure is perfectly captured in the soft colours of Judith’s beautiful illustrations. What happens in the zoo after everyone has gone home is unexpected, unpredictable and delightful. And it is a useful introduction to counting, too.
One Night in the Zoo by Judith Kerr
A wonderful counting book from Judith Kerr, the best-selling author of the Mog series and The Tiger Who Came to Tea One moonlit, magical night in the zoo An elephant jumped in the air and flew. But nobody knew. It's only once all the visitors have gone home that the real fun starts in the Zoo! Learn to count in a fun and wonderfully imaginative way as you follow all the animals through the night in this gorgeous picture book, and find out what mischief they get into.
Praise for One Night in the Zoo: Lovely! uses soothing, pastel illustrations and exotic animals to make basic counting seem unintimidating. Daily Telegraph Praise for Twinkles, Arthur and Puss': 'A very engaging take on feline behaviour
'The Tiger Who Came To Tea': 'Near perfection of form is embellished by clear, expressive illustrations. The pace is exactly right, the resolution totally satisfying.'
'A modern classic.'
'This book has enduring charm and young children will delight in the preposterous notion of a tiger creating mayhem in the house.'

'Believable, amusing and moving.'
'A supremely sensitive story.'
