My School's a Zoo!

My School's a Zoo!

by Stu Smith Illustrated by David Catrow

Watch the Video Book Trailer.

In a wacky and imaginative tale, a boy finds his entire world inhabited by animals following a field trip to the zoo. Ordinary situations are turned upside down, from breakfast with a zebra and rhino (his parents) to lions in the lunchroom and hyenas on the playground. Just when things get back to normal, he is left to worry about the upcoming class trip to a dinosaur display! Full of fun. SLJ
