It started the summer of 2002, when the Springfield librarian, Molly McGrew, by mistake drove her bookmobile into the zoo.
In this rollicking rhymed story, Molly introduces birds and beasts to this new something called reading. She finds the perfect book for every animalÑtall books for giraffes, tiny ones for crickets. ÒShe even found waterproof books for the otter, who never went swimming without Harry Potter.Ó In no time at all, Molly has them Òforsaking their niches, their nests, and their nooks,Ó going Òwild, simply wild, about wonderful books.Ó Judy SierraÕs funny animal tale coupled with Marc BrownÕs lush, fanciful paintings will have the same effect on young Homo sapiens. Altogether, itÕs more fun than a barrel of monkeys!
