Katie's Zoo A Day Oot for Wee Folk by James Robertson


Katie's Zoo A Day Oot for Wee Folk by James Robertson

Katie's Zoo is the sixth in the Katie -series, following the bestselling success of Katie's Coo , Katie's Moose , Katie's Ferm , Katie's Beasties and Katie's Year . In this new book, Katie spends a day at the zoo, meeting some of the bonnie, braw animals and birds that stay there, among them the tiger 'in his strippit coat', the koalas with 'hairy lugs', and an array of bright and beautiful birds and reptiles. But Katie's favourite animals are kept till last...Who could that be bringing up the rear of the penguin parade? Each Katie book is slightly different, and in this one the story is told in short, easy sentences containing simple Scots words. Katie is as cheery and inquisitive as ever, and there are lots of things to look at and point to in Karen Sutherland's wonderful illustrations. Katie's Zoo should prove just as popular as its predecessors.
