Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In this charming picture book, illustrated in a childlike style, Danny, a young artist, brings his drawing book to the zoo. With his best friend, Ettie, he creates an imagined world filled with animals, beginning with an elephant in a red scarf. Then he and Ettie move to the aardvarks, and the kids imagine a meeting between the animals. Double-page spreads alternate between Danny’s real world and the imagined one in his notebook, where he eventually draws himself and Ettie chatting with a crowd of other zoo creatures. At the end of the day, the children close the drawing book and head home, their sketched animal friends hovering around them. Heap’s colorful acrylic paintings and pencil sketches differentiate between reality and fantasy, but young children will easily recognize that, as in their own games, there’s plenty of overlap between the worlds. Pair this cheerful title with other picture books, such as Peter Sís’ Dinosaur! (2000) and Madlenka (2000), which artfully visualize a child’s imagined games. Preschool-Grade 1. --Gillian Engberg

My 3 year old son simply loved this book, we had to read it twice in the first evening we borrowed it from the library. Simple child-like drawings and funny story for little ones to enjoy.

My 2.5 year old son loves this book. I have been read him the book every night before he goes to sleep for more than 1 week. The conversation between the elephant and the aardvark is interesting and my son loves mimicing them and excercising the same conversation with me.
