Description
When an anteater, an elephant, a turtle, and a flamingo go over the wall at City Zoo, the adventure begins! Hot on their heels come the Zookeepers, but for this band of escapees the quest for a new life -- a better life -- knows no bounds. Told with the flair of a 1930s Hollywood drama, this clever romp follows the heroic foursome as they take up the fugitive's life among humans. Tohby Riddle's droll, soft-toned images are filled with an array of pop culture references, from Edward Hopper's Nighthawks to the Beatles' Abbey Road. As proclaimed by The Horn Book in its "News from Down Under" column, "The result soars straight and true right across age barriers ... Gently clever, exquisitely designed, rich with allusion."
