A Night at the Zoo

A Night at the Zoo

Reviewed by: Sally Holt - Raymond Village Library, Raymond, Southern Maine Library District

Review Date: October 5, 2014


Clean, brilliant illustrations and simple language and very up-to-date technology wise as the cell phone is as central a character as the animals and Sam (little boy) and Pop (grandparent...he has white hair but it could be a dad with premature white hair or older dad). After a busy day at the zoo, Sam and Pop fall asleep and the zoo closes and they are woken by a security guard and he lets them out of the zoo. Sam and Pop answer the phone when Mom calls and what do you suppose they see? Zoofies! Delightful fun loving book, nice to read about a dad/son day out. Boy or Girl.

Overall Book Score: excellent
