If I Ran the Zoo
by Dr. Seuss
"It's a pretty good zoo," said young Gerald McGrew," and the fellow who runs it seems proud of it, too." But if I ran the zoo, said young Gerald McGrew, "I'd make a few changes. That's just what I'd do . . . "
Young Gerald, not impressed by the animals at the zoo, conjures up plans for "New Zoo, McGrew Zoo." Join him on an exciting globe-trotting safari in search of the world's most unusual creatures (with equally unusual habits). A wonderful tribute to a child's imagination, this parade of creatures begins with a ten-footed lion and escalates to more and more imaginative (and bizarre) creatures, such as the Fizza-ma-Wizza-ma-Dill, "the world's biggest bird from the island of Gwark, who eats only pine trees, and spits out the bark." Come along and discover a zoo like you've never imagined, through the eyes of Gerald McGrew and the great Dr. Seuss!
