Another awesome find at an antique store. Interesting story about a guy who just wants to be at the zoo. The illustrations are beautiful with sparing color and vibrant detail.

this is a dear book from childhood on heart break and Community of all - all have call and a place where they fit - love book
This is a likeable story that touches on the issues of authority and problem solving. Cuddly illustrations help establish empathy for the main character and to immerse the reader into this tale. That being said, the text lacks a definitive moral at a time where it seems like it should take a stance.

Mr. Muster just loves the zoo.

Sweet and silly with chocolate cake & the kind of solution you'd like to get in real life.
Reading this book at the cabin when a bear knocked over a trash can on the porch.
