If I Ran the Zoo welcomes yong readers to the crazy world of Gerald McGrew, who dreams of transforming his local zoo into a madcap menagerie of wierd and wonderful beasts.
His New Zoo, McGrew Zoo would be "better than Noah's whole Ark", with an amazing array of animals, ranging from the incredible Thwerll, whose legs are snarled up in a terrible snerl, to the family of Joats, whose feet are like cows' but wear squirrel-skin coats!
Dr Seuss' Yellow Back Books are ideal for fluent readers, and great fun for practising reading aloud. They also make wonderful bedtime stories for younger children.
