Youngsters will smile in wide-eyed pleasure as they discover the shenanigans that went on one night at the zoo when there was nothing to do. 'No Tiger had growled, no lion had roared. The monkeys and zebras were idle and bored.' So to relieve the monotony of their evening those wily and wooly animals decided they needed a night on the town. Not to worry about money as the seals and walrus had cash that people had tossed into their pool. Of course, these critters are smart enough to know that they need to disguise themselves so off they go to the lost and found where they find shirts and hats. Next, they boarded a downtown bus that took them to the center of the city where there were bright lights galore. Dinner was first on their agenda, although their table manners caused a snooty French waiter to flip his toupee. Dancing at Club Boogie worked up their appetites again, so it was off to Joe's Diner for sodas and ice cream. Author-artist Michael Garland has not only penned a lilting rhyming text but created bold, colorful, hilarious illustrations - think a gimme-capped walrus attacking a banana split!Was this review helpful?
