Oh, this looks like such fun! I’ve never heard of it, but I will have to go find it 🙂 Thanks for sharing, Julie!
Good – I was so sure someone had reviewed this already!
I thought that hippo looked familiar! Marc Brown has a pretty distinctive style. Thanks for the recommendation!
Looks like an illustrator can ‘run but can’t hide’ too!
Great review. This book looks really fun. Is that Marc Brown of Arthur?
Pinned to my list the minute I saw the cover! I love the art and the sound of the book in general! The title is such a great play on words that invites you right in.
I love writing about zoo animals, this sounds brilliant. Such interesting language and super rhythm.
Hope you, I mean the kids like it!
“Simple line drawings and coarse (yet not itchy!) textures..” love this description, Julie. i always enjoy illustrators describing picture books! Great review and I like your eco-link.
Comes from being a wool-lover, never minding the itch got me a lot of hand-me-overs!
Oh no! A spotless ocelot?
I will not have it. I will not!
Obviously I am feeling Seussical about Zoozical! Thanks for a fun review!
Does that mean you’ve see Seussical the Musical too? The HS put that on 4 yrs ago and my daughter was lucky to be on the costuming crew!
The cover grabbed y attention immediately and I knew it was about a musical performance. Love stories like this. Great activities. Will have to look for this read.
Beth got me going as she had a ‘Fiddler’ tune stuck in her head! I imagine this book will inspire a few budding thespians!
HA! This looks cute and a MUST read! 🙂
We recently checked this one out from the library and LOVED it!
I don’t associate this publisher with many children’s books or fiction for that matter so was surprised by that they published this book.
I loved your review. Thanks for sharing it. 🙂
You may be right as to the low number of PBs they publish, but I have seen a few. I suppose it would be good to look into those numbers in general; I tend to note the quality I admire from different houses.
Ha! I’m having a hoot of a time reading your replies to everyone, never mind the book…lol. And I daren’t guess what you would say with my comment…lol. But I do love the cover of this book and I’m itchin just readin your fab review ….lol.
Great one Julie!
I always wonder not only who reads a post, but if I am the only one reading comments and replies! Makes me stand a bit taller when I recognize a kindred spirit!
lol…stand tall sister, stand tall!
A small hippo. I love it. I’ve added it to my library list.
Pocket-sized. Only joking!
