Crazy Zoo Paperback – August 27, 2014

Five Star Award
Reviewed By Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite
Crazy Zoo is a wonderful book in many ways. It introduces kids to many new animals. The introduction on each animal is useful to learn a bit more about each one. Apart from that, kids are given a peek into daily zoo life. The story line connects all the zoo animals and birds together. Bridget's characterization is quite appealing. She is allowed to wander around in the park, listening to the chatter of parrots, and passing gossip to those who are curious to know more. It makes a lovely story for read aloud sessions.

This is a delightful story about a crazy zoo with some crazy inhabitants. The story opens with another day at the world's craziest zoo. All the animals are enjoying the cool air at Zoo Park before it becomes hot and humid. Bridget the Brolga Bird thinks it is her responsibility to handle all the problems happening in the zoo. The animals are not allowed to speak to their keepers. Instead, they speak to Bridget and she makes sure that their problems are resolved. Bridget, with all her clever ideas, tries to keep the animals living there contented and happy.
About the Author
When I started reading books to my son he soon became terrified of the stories about dragons, and ogres, and magic, and in particular one about a dream maker who whispered in the ears of sleeping children. He didn't sleep for weeks. So I started writing stories for him about things he was interested in, and had soon written my first novel about the war between red and grey squirrels. I knew then I wanted to write about the natural world, and wrote another children's novel which deals with bullying in the animal kingdom. I later teamed up with an illustrator and together we produced a children's picture book, about a dancing hippo and the story is about not being afraid to be different. All of my children's stories deal with life issues such as bullying, racism, and the importance of teamwork. I joined several peer writing groups, reading other writers' works and critiquing as well as submitting my own work for critique. I also took a creative writing course with the Open University which helped me to become more organised in my writing. I then wrote an adult novel, a crime/thriller, The Black Widows. My next adult novel, Curse of the Dogwood, was published as an ebook in June 2014. I have just completed two further novels which have been submitted to my agent in New Zealand who is also now representing my children's novels. I spent twenty-five years working in English law, always day-dreaming of the time I might be able to give up work and just write. Now that is what I am doing. I have had seven published novels, and working on two more, with a few more ideas swimming about inside my head.
