Do Not Enter The Monster Zoo

Do Not Enter The Monster Zoo

Summary

What would you do if you received an invitation to run a zoo full of huge, scary monsters?
The brave little boy in this story leaps at the chance, and although the monsters seem scary at first, he soon has them eating out of the palm of his hand.

This is an exciting, imaginative, hilarious adventure that encourages little readers to have confidence and stand up for themselves, from the illustrator of Dogs Don't Do Ballet and Rhinos Don't Eat Pancakes.
