"Young Gerald Mc Grew thinks of all sorts of unusual animals he'd have in a zoo.     Dr. Seuss at his best."--Horn Book.

"It's a pretty good zoo,"stated young Gerald Mc Grew,"and the fellow who runs it seems proud of it, too."And that's just what Gerald imagines, as he travels the world in this playfully illustrated Dr. Seuss classic (very first published back in 1950) , collecting all sorts of beasts"that you don't see each and each and every day."But if Gerald ran the zoo, the New Zoo, Mc Grew Zoo, he'd see to generating a modify or two:"So I'd open each cage. When do you suppose this young fellow will stop? Whether it's a scraggle-foot Mulligatawny or a wild-haired Iota (from"the far western element of south-east North Dakota ") , Gerald amazes the globe with his new and improved zoo:"This Zoo Keeper, New Keeper's just astounding! He travels so far that you think he would drop! I'd unlock every pen, let the animals go, and start over once again."From the mountains of Zomba-ma-Tant to the blistering sands of the Desert of Zind, Gerald hunts down every animal imaginable (" I'll catch 'em in nations no one can spell, like the country of Motta-fa-Potta-fa-Pell")."

But Gerald's weird and wonderful globe-trotting safari doesn't finish a moment too soon:"young Mc Grew's produced his mark. (Ages 4 to 8) Ironically, Seuss was trying here--in his wild, explosive, and at times careless manner--to celebrate the joys of unconventionality together with the bliss of liberation!"Some of the text and illustrations--imaginative as they are--are obviously dated, such due to the reality the following passage:"I'll hunt in the mountains of Zomba-ma-Tant/ With helpers who all wear their eyes at a slant,/ And capture a fine fluffy bird referred to as the Bustard/ Who only eats custard with sauce developed of mustard."And your youngsters could be the really first to recognize that attitudes have changed considering that the xenophobic '50s. He's built a zoo better than Noah's complete Ark! But that doesn't mean this tale need be discarded; instead, it should be discussed.
