Day 6: Today six geese-a-laying showed up at our office. We are, in fact, assembling quite the little collection of animals here for our 12 Days of Random House Library Marketing Giveaway. We’re pleased that today’s giveaway book is also a celebration of the animal kingdom with the amazing children’s book WHAT’S NEW AT THE ZOO? by Adolph Green and Betty Comden.
Join the fun at the zoo and enter to win a copy of What’s New at the Zoo? here.
Songwriting legends Adolph Green and Betty Comden’s lyrics (known for their hit Broadway show Do Re Mi) and Travis Foster’s vividly comic illustrations perfectly capture the hilarious happenings at the zoo.
So, What is New at the Zoo? Well…as the book reads, it’s overloaded…the population has exploded…and the animals want out – NOW! OUCH! “You’re stepping on my pouch!” to the bear said the kangaroo. OH! “You’re stepping on my toe!” to the kangaroo said the gnu.
What’s New at the Zoo? comically chronicles the grumblings and rumblings of all the animals, and kids will delight in the hilarious lift-the-flap surprises of acclaimed illustrator Travis Foster’s spot-on creations. Includes an introduction by Green’s wife, Tony Award-winning actress, Phyllis Newman.
Check out this video of the What’s New At the Zoo launch party with an introduction by Phyllis Newman followed by a group of local children singing the lyrics to the book.
