Summary: This is a wordless book that tells the story of a walrus in a zoo who escapes and disguises himself all around town as the zoo keeper tries to catch him. Walrus ends up winning an award at a diving competition and the zoo keeper realizes that they should provide Walrus with a diving board at the zoo to keep him happy. Genre: Wordless BookPersonal Reflection: I like the message that you need to find what makes you happy and/or what you're good at and include that in your daily life. Concept: I like the 'old style' 1950's-ish illustrations and the bright colors. I think the message of finding what makes you happy and including that in your daily life is a good message for kids.

The zookeeper is sleeping and the walrus sees that someone has left the gate open at the zoo. Off goes the walrus! And right after him is the zookeeper. The walrus is able to cleverly camouflage himself as a customer in a diner, a statue in a fountain, and a bricklayer. But the walrus makes a mistake when he enters a diving contest. He scores a ten from every judge and the zookeeper is able to capture him. When the walrus is returned to the zoo, the zookeeper builds the walrus his own diving platform.A wonderful wordless treat.

Absolutely outstanding illustrations. No text, so reader can adjust the story according the the listener. Mesmerizing. So imaginative! With each reading a child notices more details. Just totally enchanting. I highly recommend the book.
