School Library Journal Review

1 Zany Zoo was reviewed in the July edition of the School Library Journal.  I'm pretty happy with it - here's an excerpt:

" . . . Degman's giggle-inducing rhymes move this read-aloud story along: "2 sporty zebras in goggle and flippers / were snipping the walrus's whiskers with clippers. / One did the combing, the other the trimming, / They swept up the clippings, then all four went swimming."  Kids will enjoy hearing the catchy rhymes read multiple times.  Digital cartoon images, made to appear like hand-drawn ink sketches, capture the swift movement and playful mood.  Overall, this is a fun romp through the zoo."
