What fun! I loved this story about a librarian who parks her bookmobile in the zoo, then proceeds to help the animals love books, find the stories they will like best, and understand how to treat books nicely. It's an absolute hoot and the text and illustrations both weave in many famous books; children will be familiar with some of them, and will probably giggle over the idea of otters reading Harry Potter, for example ;-) Sierra and Brown wrote this in honor of Dr. Seuss, and I think he would be pleased with the homage.

Note that even though this book takes place in a zoo, the animals seem very much in natural habitats, not in cages, so even those of you who do not like zoos may still enjoy this sweet, delightful tale.
