Format: Hardcover
Basic plot of Zip It!, follows a young boy called Joe who throughout the whole day visiting various stores with his day. Joe along with a fly of the insect variety, is trying to tell his father that the zipper at the front of his pants is undone and to zip it up. Joe fails, and fails again at getting the sentence out as his father comes into contact with more and more people including his teacher, embarrassing Joe. There are plenty of plays on the word fly or zip in both text and illustrations.

I really liked the idea of a picture book about a guy with his fly undone, it's something most males, from young boys to men fear doing, a lot probably even have at one stage, so a picture book on the subject is bound to be pretty popular. There were many avenues this book could have gone down, many funny situations that the book just never visits. The book concentrated too much on getting the word zip of fly into as many situations as possible. I also didn't buy that Joe couldn't just yell out "Dad, your fly's undone!" or something similar. There really is nothing stopping him, yet he just doesn't do it but instead gets more stressed and stressed. He's even fishing at one stage while his dad must have been sitting quietly and has fallen asleep, surely as soon as his father stopped talking he could have told him? I think the story would have worked better without Joe in it, with the various people the dad comes in contact with making the zip references Joe does and laughing at him behind his back.
