The Way to the Zoo - John Burningham

One night, Sylvie notices a door in the wall of her bedroom that she has never seen before. How utterly enticing! Author and illustrator John Burningham, two-time winner of the Kate Greenaway medal, leads readers on The Way to the Zoo (Candlewick, $15.99). Once Sylvie realizes that she has a secret passage to the zoo, she starts bringing creatures home who may or may not be able to sleep in her bed with her. All goes well until one morning she wakes to the realization that she forgot to close the door. Find out about the ensuing chaos in this special read-aloud accompanied by Burningham’s trademark muted pen and pencil drawings with watercolor accents. Ages 3-6.  KLP
