The Lovereading4Kids comment

A wonderfully humorous picture storybook in which kids will have great fun joining in with the animals. From a donkey called Drew, to hopping bunnies with grass to chew, this rowdy group of animals at the zoo are making a hullabaloo! Children will delight in this enchanting storybook, with humorous text and lively illustrations. Each spread describes each of the animals and adds another, resulting in chaos that is bound to amuse new and emerging readers and ensuring that this book is guaranteed to be picked up time and time again. But there's someone missing from the hullabaloo. Can you guess who that is before you get to the end?
