REVIEW: Midnight at the Zoo by Faye Hanson
Midnight at the Zoo is the follow up to Faye Hanson's debut, The Wonder, featuring the same dazzlingly coloured pencil drawings. The animals are nowhere to be seen when Max and Mia go to the zoo but they soon find out that things change after dark. As the clock strikes midnight flouncing flamingos, prancing pandas and lemurs swinging from lanterns take part in a spectacular show! A great picture book for the very young because the story is simple and the text is full of alliteration, so great for reading aloud. The atmospheric illustrations are packed with details to spot, making this the kind of picture book children will dream about afterwards.
