It started the summer of 2002, when the Springfield librarian, Molly McGrew, by mistake drove her bookmobile into the zoo.
In this rollicking rhymed story, Molly introduces birds and beasts to this new something called reading. She finds the perfect book for every animal . . .tall books for giraffes, tiny ones for crickets. She even found waterproof books for the otter, who never went swimming without Harry Potter.
In no time at all, Molly has them forsaking their niches, their nests, and their nooks, going wild, simply wild, about wonderful books.
Judy Sierra 's funny animal tale coupled with Marc Brown 's lush, fanciful paintings will have the same effect on young Homosapiens. Altogether, it 's more fun than a barrel of monkeys!
Why Our Experts Love It
This book is fabulously silly and fun!
If zoo animals love to read, then your child will as well! And the beautiful illustrations will take you to another world (or zoo).
