Poor old Mr. Peek the zookeeper has a bad start to his day. Will he notice what has gone wrong, or will he spread confusion throughout the zoo?

When Mr. Peek puts on his son’s jacket by mistake, he starts to air all his insecurities as he goes on his daily rounds at the zoo. But unbeknownst to Mr. Peek, all the animals think he is talking about them! How will the unfortunate misunderstanding be cleared up? This debut picture book from a stunning new talent—winner of a Bologna Ragazzi Award—combines hilarious, distinctive illustrations with a fantastic story about how easily insecurities can spread.
