Synopsis

Mitford at the Fashion Zoo by Donald Robertson

Mitford the giraffe has always loved fashion and dressing up. It's been Mitford's lifelong dream to work at the famous fashion magazine COVER. Thanks to its art director, Ace Salmonton, Mitford gets the chance. But not without first jumping through many hoops, thrown by the infamously fabulous editor, Panda Summers. Along the way, Mitford meets Zap Possum, Shark Jakobs, and Mikael Boars, and saves Fashion Week from disaster!

Reviews

Amazon Best Book of the Month, August 2015 (Ages 3-5) I really love that giraffe I would definitely be interested in playing Mitford when the inevitable movie comes out. Gwendolyn Christie, Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones

Fashion-forward CoolHuntings.com While fashion-conscious readers will appreciate the punning, even those oblivious to the tongue-in-cheek ribbing of fashion-world characters and excesses will marvel at Robertson's richly animated storyboards with their bright hues and zany, literally animalistic garment ensembles. Sassy and inspiringly drawn: a funny, captivating treat for the eyes and imagination. Kirkus Reviews
