Synopsis

Marco: Moonwalker by Gerry Boland

After escaping from the zoo and coming to live with Patrick and his mum, Marco proves to have many talents. Now Patrick discovers that Marco is also a musical genius - he can play the trombone, banjo and even moonwalk like Michael Jackson! 'Let's start a band', Patrick says, and Marco becomes a star. Then disaster strikes. He is spotted without his mask and taken back to the zoo. How will Patrick and Mum get him out again?

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
