Come on down

to the Universal Zoo.

Want to see amazing animals?
Buy a ticket, join the queue.

Every creature has a place at the far end of Space, in the Universal Zoo.

Look out for the Shy Shimmereen, the Snoozing Snoralotz, the Invisible Ballaboo Beast and the Ten-Legged, Swivel-Headed, Bushy-Bearded, Twirly-Tailed Horrox. Meet the Martian kids with two heads, and stare at the Enormous Egg. And if you think dragons don't exist and dodos are extinct, then think again. But be warned – never, never, never feed the Gronk!

A riot of imagination and fun, these poems also send a message about conservation and saving species.

MEDIA REVIEWS

“Hugely imaginative” - The Bookseller

"This collection of poetry is a celebration of words, sounds and language. Bursting with alliteration, rhyme and a rich variety of verse styles, this book is anarchic, unique and lots of fun... The illustrations by Will Hughes of the imaginary creatures are lively and entertaining, and really bring the poems to life. Full of tongue-twisting energy, this collection would be great fun for families to read out aloud together, as well as being a fantastic introduction to those new to poetry. This would also be wonderful and inspiring classroom material - teachers would undoubtedly find it useful for inspiring interesting conversations about the diversity of life, and for teaching alliteration, simile and rhyme. In fact, there is even a helpful section at the back, encouraging young readers to become poets. We would certainly recommend this lively collection!" - Armadillo Magazine
