Editorial Reviews

Review

"Graphic designer Bruno Munari is one of the most inventive picture book creators I know. I have been inspired, entertained, and in awe of his work since I was a graphic design student in Germany more than 50 years ago. And Zoo has been one of my favorites. I am delighted that it is available once again for a new generation of picture book readers of all ages."

During the course of his career, he received many prizes and awards, including a Japan Design Foundation prize, and honorable mention by the Academy of Sciences in New York, and the Andersen Prize for best children's author of 1974.

There are a lot of animal books out there. There are a lot of zoo books out there. There are very few of said books that do it with this kind of ingenuity. The first time you read the lines "Flamingos know they are strange and beautiful and play at symmetry" to your 3 year old, you know you have stumbled on to a rare gem.

Will they know what symmetry is? Probably not, but you do -- and that is what is so great about this simple book. Everyone gets to enjoy the book, on whatever level they can appreciate it for.

I'm so glad I purchased this book. The art is wonderful and the descriptions of the animals are just a little cheeky. Both my 1.5 year old and my 3 year old love this book. It is requested for storytime often.

It's not your traditional children's book--and I love that! As an adult I find it entertaining. There are many pages I find unique to children's book writing in terms of the words and different animals in the book. However, there are some pages that seem more similar to your standard zoo book/alphabet book. One thing is for sure is you will be the only one with this book at a baby shower.

We had bought Munari's ABC book previously and needed an animal book too, so I got this. The illustrations are lovely. Some of the text is a bit odd and awkward sounding, but we are focusing on the pictures for now.

After taking our twin 2 1/2 year old grandson's to the zoo, we unsuccessfully look at the zoo gift shop for a book that would highlight animals that we had seen on that visit. Hard to imagine, but there were non. Many of the books dealt with one animal not a cross range. Therefore, returning home, I searched out this book by Bruno Munari. It is excellent and my daughter and the twins are very happy with my choice.

I bought this last year for my daughter's 4th birthday. She loves books - being read to and flipping through herself. I thought this would be a good one since it's mainly drawings. But it has not become her (or my) favorites. It's big and cumbersome and not as interesting as I was hoping. The drawings are nice but don't really tell much of a story. I wouldn't recommend it unless you have a child who loves zoos.

The best part is the line about the zebra's striped pajamas. Really great illustrations.
