Zoolidays is a children’s book about the animals of a fledgling zoo that is about to close down due to lack of business. Since the animals are all in danger of losing their home they must think how to get the patrons to come back. One night the desperate animals come up with a brilliant idea, a wonderfully creative plan, to save themselves and the zoo. The results were amazing. Zoolidays is masterfully illustrated with loving detail and will nurture creative imagination in children too with its visually memorable and whimsical story.
