The Universal Zoo
The Conservation Place at the Far End of Space
By Neal Zetter
Illustrated by Will Hughes
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 never, never, never feed the Gronk!
A riot of imagination and fun, these poems also send a message about conservation and saving species.
