A child, a visit to the zoo, animals--sounds like good, simple all-American fun. But there’s something different about this zoo. These animals want things. Unusual things. What will they do with them? Laughs, jokes, and surprises abound in this graphic picture book about a feisty, all-too-helpful little girl and her role in aiding and abetting zoo-animal shenanigans. Adam Rex once again reveals the hilarious hidden life of creatures we thought we knew well.

ADAM REX is the author and illustrator of the New York Times Book Review bestseller Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich. He lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.Review:
* “As if more proof were needed that Adam Rex has a strange and goofy mind, here’s a visit to a meta-fictional zoo with some uncommonly crafty residents. . . Rex gives the whole episode a surreal, expect-anything feel. . . .[A] gleefully postmodern romp.” (starred review) (Kirkus Reviews)
* “A sort of Personal Shopper Doolittle, a zoo-going girl talks to the animals, but the novelty wears off when the pushy beasts send her on errands. . . . Rex packs increasingly crisp conversations into tight six-panel comics, relaxing into airy spreads as the girl meanders along zoo paths. . . . A very funny excursion.” (starred review) (Publishers Weekly)
