One Night in the Zoo

Publisher: HarperCollins Children's Books

Review

This rhyming counting book is set in a zoo and follows the antics of the various animal inhabitants once night falls. A crocodile and a kangaroo ride a bicycle made for two, rabbits climb a giraffe for the view and monkeys stick a cockatoo’s feathers back on with glue.

Kerr’s soft pencil illustrations are delightful and despite the surreal activities her animals get up to, all will be recognisable to young children, who will enjoy counting along and pointing them out on each page.
