9780152010096: If Anything Ever Goes Wrong at the Zoo

“If anything ever goes wrong at the zoo, you can send the zebras to my house,” Leslie tells the zebra keeper. She also invites the monkeys and the elephants. None of them ever comes--until one wet, stormy night when the zoo floods and the zebra keeper remembers Leslie’s offer. “It’s a simple, enticing idea, gracefully and logically developed by this new author and ably abetted by Dyer’s watercolors. . . . A real charmer.”--Kirkus Reviews

About the Author:

JANE DYER has illustrated many well-loved picture books, including Move Over, Rover!, a Geisel Honor Book written by Karen Beaumont; Oh My Baby, Little One, an ABA Pick of the Lists and Parent's Choice Recommended Book written by Kathi Appelt; and the bestselling classic Time for Bed by Mem Fox. She lives in Northampton, Massachusetts.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Every Saturday, Leslie makes an eponymous offer to one of the zookeepers: ``...you can send the zebras to my house.'' They promise to remember but aren't encouraging (``Oh, no...Monkeys...need things to swing on''). Then something does go wrong--heavy rains, flooding--and, one memorable night, the keepers bring the animals to Leslie's hilltop home, where they put the elephants in the garage, the monkeys on the swing-set, an alligator in the tub, ostriches in the hall--but just for the night. The keepers are grateful; Mom is surprised but polite: ``The next time you invite friends home, would you check with me first?'' It's a simple, enticing idea, gracefully and logically developed by this new author and ably abetted by Dyer's watercolors, which nicely capture the animals' appeal and the cozy, dependable family so willing to take them in. A real charmer. (Picture book. 4-8) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
