How Much Does the Grey in an Elephant Weigh?
Erik van Os and Elle van Lieshout
When you visit at the zoo,
Do youwonder like I do . . .
Why does a giraffe have spots of brown,
And do zebra’s stripes go up, or down?
The wonder and variety of zoo animals is explored in this book, which is as full of questions as Kipling's Elephant's Child. From an elephant to a peacock, a rhinoceros to a flamingo, an inquisitive child and his grandfather visit and ponder each animal.
