This delightful book for early childhood will enthral young children and their older readers. The vibrant illustrations are accompanied by a soft lyrical text and together they introduce some of the diverse native and exotic animals to be found in Australian zoos. A ‘surprised lion’, ‘pacing jaguar’, ‘grinning gorilla’, ‘devoted elephant’ and a ‘queenly cassowary’ are just some of the featured zoo animals that will tug at the heartstrings in this fabulous animal parade.
First release of the ‘Young Art’ Board Book series that showcases young Indigenous artists.
"This stunning board book shines with quirk and colour as we're introduced to some of the more unusual native and exotic animals you'll find in Australia's zoos."
Kid's Book Review
"A great little book for sharing with children who are learning what a book is and what an experience with a book might be like."
