The Zoomers' Handbook
This is not a handbook for farmers. Farmers look after chickens, cows, and pigs. Anyone can do that. This is not a handbook for zookeepers. Zookeepers look after monkeys, elephants, and lions. That’s easy. This is a handbook for zoomers. Zoomers look after very special beasts…. Discover the secret of the shiger’s stripy wool, the challenges of owning a loyal but gigantic dogephant, and the special skills of the super-fast horsodile in this mind-bending, creature-blending book. What wacky mixed-up animals can you imagine?

“Kids will get a kick out of these animal mash-ups . . . [and] have fun identifying the two animals that make up each specimen. . . . The large-scale format and opportunities for participation make this a nice choice for a silly storytime.”—Booklist
