About the Author
Mr. Baker-Hall was born in Never Never Land and used to be one of the Lost Boys until he eventually decided to grow up.
Mr. Baker-Hall then moved to Whoville where he studied Literature with Cindy Lou Who. On school breaks, he used to travel to Wonderland where he was the official storyteller to the Queen of Hearts.
When he almost had his head cut off after he did not end a story with "They lived happily ever after", Mr. Baker-Hall fled to London where he now writes his inventively funny stories.

“There is a flood at the Zoo”, is how this story begins; the wonderfully bright and colorful illustrations on each page are no match for the truly clever sentence structure used to tell the story.
One of the first lines explains what is happening with a couple of birds.
“When a cock squawked and a hawk mocked,
he cocked and mopped, hawked and hopped.”
Combine this phraseology with a painting of a cock with purple and blue feathers, an orange neck and head and a pink cockscomb atop his head.
Everything about this book is engaging. When I was a child, this is exactly the sort of book that would capture my imagination, and make me want to know if there were such places as this zoo, and would the animals really act like these animals.
Each page is so well thought out; the colors used to paint the illustrations are captivating.
I read this book on the kindle app on my i-phone, which has a 2” x 3” screen. I can only imagine what this book would look like on a full sized screen.
I say, you should buy the book and open you and your family up to a warm and well-executed story, to be read over and over.
Nicely done, well written. Please read all the reviews and make your own decision. I read them as well. These are my own words.
Mr. Baker-Hall delights us with a rhyming verse that pleads to be read aloud – to share all the puns and slightly naughty rhymes with children attuned to being entertained (and learning about animals and behaviors at the same time). The tale is that of a flood at the zoo and where all the animals respond to the disaster. ‘An ape put on a cape and tried to escape. That Is quite silly, isn’t it really?’ We learn how the various zoo animals use their traits to escape the flood, depending on each other in fun ways. And in the end it all comes to simply a fun outing…..Lessons to be learned.
Bet you can’t own just one of these Baker-Hall books….the whole collection will grow and you need to be a part of the fun. Highly Recommended (for adults, too!). Grady Harp, March 16
I definitely recommend checking the other books of the series. You will not regret it.
