When Lulu Went to the Zoo
Author: Andy Ellis · Subject: Children’s
When little Lulu gets an idea, watch out! After a chat with the animals at the zoo, she sneaks all of the animals into her house, where “there’s room for you all, from elephant to mouse.” Or so she thinks until she tries to fit a bear into the bathtub . . . Before the zookeepers can bring the animals back to the zoo, though, bold Lulu dreams up a new place for her animal friends to live. And four-year-olds can be very persuasive.
Children will love this rollicking, read-aloud tale matched by hilarious illustrations.

“When Lulu Went to the Zoo is a story written in fun rhyme about a little girl’s trip to the zoo. While Lulu is at the zoo, she chats with the animals as the animals tell her they want to be free. So one night she sneaks all the animals out of the zoo and brings them to her house to live. She tells them, “There’s room for you all, from elephant to mouse,” but soon realizes there is not room for all. In fact, there is no place for food because “the fridge [is] too full of penguins and seals.” Plus, Lulu finds it hard to keep all the zoo animals a secret from everyone. The zookeepers find Lulu and ask her to give all the animals back so they can put them to bed; however, Lulu has another idea for the zoo animals. Where will the animals go: back to the zoo or somewhere else? Andy Ellis has written and illustrated over fifty picture books. Readers will enjoy the illustrations in When Lulu Went to the Zoo. They are colorful, delightful, and entertaining on every page.” – VS Grenier, Amazon
