Zoo Train

By Sally Sutton
Illustrated by Daron Parton

CHUGGA … CHUGGA … CHOO! CHOO! THUGGA … THUGGA … All aboard the zoo train. Better keep your eyes open – this is a crazy zoo!

A boy and his mother ride a train through the zoo, unaware that it is being overrun by naughty monkeys, who steal hats, scarfs and even cake and popcorn!

  • From bestselling and award-winning author Sally Sutton.
  • Engaging onomatopoeic rhyming refrain throughout makes it perfect for reading aloud and reading together.
  • Humorous visual story with a "pantomime" feel will encourage boisterous participation as readers spot the naughty monkeys and laugh at their antics.
