Best-selling author Mem Fox celebrates a special father-daughter day in this visually stunning picture book
Spend a day at the zoo. There's so much to see: the tiger with the stripes across its back, the panther with its coat of shiny black, the zebra whose tail goes whack!
The rhythmic text by Mem Fox is filled with surprises and reflects all the playfulness and warmth found in family relationships. The texture and glowing colors of Candace Whitman's torn paper collages bring all the animals, exotic and familiar, to life.
Raised primarily in Rhodesia, Mem Fox wanted to be an actress before becoming an author of books for children. Her first book, POSSUM MAGIC, was published in 1983. In addition to her books for children, she has also written teaching guides and other nonfiction materials. In 1990 she received the Dromkeen Medal, an Australian award for overall contribution to children's literature.
"Whitman's charming torn-paper collage illustrations add visual excitement and a fresh approach to the zoo."
From the Publisher
A rhyming text describes a young girl named Flora's trip to the zoo. Illustrated with colorful torn-paper collages.
While Flora visits the zoo with her father, not only does she look at the animals but some of them turn to look at her.
