Join the Zoo Hullabaloo! by Jan Ormerod

The animal bop just won't stop so move your body from bottom to top! Join jolly jellyfish, mischievous meerkats, a gentle giraffe, parading peacocks, and many more in this high energy invitation to take part in the animal bop. The rhythmic rhyming text encourages all sorts of actions and noises that are lots of fun to do-prowling and growling, wiggling and sashaying, trotting and strutting. And every move is gloriously illustrated by Lindsey Gardiner with a kaleidoscope of pattern and collage. Previously published as The Animal Bop Won't Stop.


Colourful and imaginative with a catchy rhyming text, perfect for reading aloud. Parents in Touch Praise for Doing the Animal Bop: I'm not sure who enjoys this book more-me or my nine month old son! The illustrations are fun, and rhymes for each animal are simple, amusing and incredibly rhythmic and will get you willingly joining in the animal bop . Amazon Reviewer An excellent book which gets the kids moving around, it makes them think what actions each of the animals do. Amazon Reviewer

About the Author

Jan Ormerod

Jan Ormerod (1946 - 2013) grew up in the fifties, in a series of small towns in Western Australia, with her three older sisters. As a child she drew constantly and compulsively, inspired by beautifully drawn schoolgirl annuals from England and secretly acquired American comics that were forbidden by her parents.

Her books have largely been a celebration and savouring of the positive experience of parenthood she truly had not anticipated–the fun, the warmth, and the love. Jan was acutely aware that picture books are almost always shared by the child and a caring adult.

She published more than 50 picture books in her lifetime, won many honours and awards, and her work is published in more than 20 countries.
