Zany Zoo

Welcome to the Zany Zoo! An unusual bunch in here, it’s true, but if fun and silliness are what you seek, turn the pages, take a peek . . .

Author William Wise and illustrator Lynn Munsinger have teamed up to bring an exotic menagerie to life. The rollicking, rhyming poems feature a wild variety of different animals, each one undeniably unique. William Wise’s playful poetry is perfectly matched by Lynn Munsinger’s hilarious watercolor illustrations highlighting each creature’s distinct personality, from Gertrude the good agouti to Sabrina the carefree snake. Together Wise and Munsinger present young readers and listeners with this delightfully Zany Zoo, captured not in a cage but on the page!

    "Not your usual zoo, this happy gathering of poetry and verse is broadly inclusive of its denizens, who live in unfettered joy within handsomely designed pages." —Horn Book, Starred

    "Exuberant wordplay fuels this animal-themed collection of light verse. . . . Munsinger will keep kids riveted with her goofy, anthropomorphic illustrations, and the chanting rhythms and spot-on rhymes will perk up listeners even when the humor misses the bull’s-eye." —Booklist Booklist, ALA

    "This book is a fantastic tool for sharing literature and language with a humorous and dramatic flare. It's sure to appeal to a wide audience." —School Library Journal
