Readers Favorite Five Star Review of A Very Strange Zoo

Here is an excerpt from the review:

A Very Strange Zoo is an ingenious, magical tale of an inventor who creates animals by recycling household items. The crazy young inventor in the story invents all sorts of strange things like a boat with wings that can fly or a pail with legs — but none of them work. Then he builds some weird animals to keep him company. But, he made too much noise and everyone moves away. What kind of animals could one make by using items around the house? After they get hit by lightning, the animals come to life and build their own homes and villages. Author Chris Stead has written a fun, imaginative story that children and parents will enjoy reading..."
