This zoo is not for you

This zoo is not for you

Nosy Crow

When platypus visits the zoo, the animals all assume he has come about the vacancy and he is swiftly taken through a rigorous interview process. But platypus is far too bland for the chameleons, not nearly graceful enough for the flamingos, and his tricks will never impress the monkeys. So, he leaves. The animals soon regret being so unkind and need to apologise, but . . . what's this? Maybe platypus didn't want to join their zoo after all.. and is that a Platybus outside?

A rollicking rhyming follow up to There's a Bear on My Chair, combining comic misunderstandings with a heartfelt story about acceptance and belonging.

The Observer Book of the Week
'Shot through with -mischief. Told with rhyming couplets with beautifully expressive illustrations, it bounces along, a pleasure to read aloud. Funny but heartfelt and a little bit rock'n'roll. Clearly Collins knows how to throw a good party - young children should find the invitation irresistible.'
The Observer
