Every school has its share of bookworms.

Some schools have bugs in their computers.

And lots of schools have spelling bees. But this school has bears. This school has owls. This school is a ZOO!

Imagination runs wild in this fun-filled story about a school packed with pythons, teeming with tigers, and swimming with starfish. Stu Smith's lively text and David Catrow's hilarious art will have kids looking at school -- and words -- in a whole new way!

A lad’s world is transformed the morning after a zoo visit: his parents “snort and drool” at the breakfast table, the substitute teacher is literally a bear, the computers in the lab are swarming with giant “bugs” of the creepy-crawly kind, and so on.
