The cutest, cleverest animal alphabet book in years!

Filled with graphically bold and laugh-out-loud animal art, The Zoo I Drew takes children on a bright and bumpy tour of the ABCs! Silly rhyming text introduces a menagerie of animals from the scaly alligator to the cuddly koala to the finicky panda to a sadly balding vulture to the X . . . Wait! Has anyone ever found a truly satisfying animal for the letter X? Only the youthful narrator-illustrator of The Zoo I Drew knows.

This book also features a fluted cover—a fancy term for ridges—that makes it visually appealing on the shelf and fun to hold!

From the Hardcover edition.

His lines on the vulture, for example, are clunky: ""With a bald, wrinkled head,/ It's called a bird of prey./ I just don't understand why/ The vulture doesn't wear a wig or toupee."" The text repeatedly falls far short of the book's eye-catching design.
