Synopsis

The day begins as many do:

I find myself inside a zoo. . . .

So begins a typical day, as seen through the eyes of a young boy.

In his bedroom, you see stuffed animals.
He sees a pack of wild creatures, lying in wait.
In the kitchen, you see the family dog.
He sees a hairy beast, demanding to be fed.
And in the closet, you see a vacuum cleaner.
He sees a snorting, hungry monster.

Join this imaginative boy on his voyage through the exciting world of make-believe that he has created, with some help from Linda Ashman and Claudio Mu#241;oz.

And the next time you pull out the vacuum cleaner, take a close look. What do you see?

Muñoz's (Le Petit Capitaine ) action-filled drawings show the boy rappelling down the stairs, smacking the dangerous ape away and flying like superman as his father whisks him back to the kitchen for lunch.
