Zoo School

CRITICS HAVE SAID

  • The characters are clearly developed, and all of the children gradually learn about themselves and the world around them. This evenly paced novel could be shared aloud with youngsters needing a step up from Joanna Cole’s “Magic School Bus” series or read independently by those who enjoy zany school stories like Louis Sachar’s Sideways Stories from Wayside School.
