When Lulu Went to the Zoo by Andy Ellis


When Lulu Went to the Zoo by Andy Ellis

'When Lulu went to the zoo she was sad for the giraffes and the penguins too.' Lulu decides to release all the animals from their cages and takes them back to her house to live. However that turns out to be not quite such a good plan after all...Children will love this rollicking, read-aloud text matched by hilarious illustrations.


Lovely rhythm and simple rhyme make this story easy and fun to read. The Poet Mouse Andy Ellis pairs his charming illustrations with a delightfully light rhyming text that is perfect for reading out loud. Through the Looking Glass
