“A fun, rhyming story set in a fictional zoo”.

The animals are bored and are looking for something to do while they wait for Bertie the zookeeper to open the gates.


Bertie’s daughter, Maisie, suggests a beauty contest and the animals take it in turns to tell her why they think that they should win.


Children learn about the traits of each animal and also that, although creatures may be different, they are all beautiful in their own way.


This important message ties in with Key Stage 1 diversity topics.


Sales of this book help to raise funds for the conservation charity, World Land Trust.
