    This beautifully illustrated group of Zoo Buddies tell a wonderful story of friendship and working together to create a memorable suprise birthday party for Chimp's. This is the perfect read for younger children.

  • Peacefulmothering

    The illustrations are super cute with great vocabulary for kids. No doubt the book has an immense ability to catch the attention of little readers out there!

  • Readingwith2boys

    We loved reading the book together and even Kabir joined in & enjoyed looking at the bright pictures and pointing at different animals. It's a lovely story to teach children about the importance of teamwork, sharing & caring for a friend.

  • what_the_wild_things_read

    We read this book A LOT in the lead-up to my wild things 3rd birthday; it got him really excited for his big day!

    The zoo animals are arranging a surprise party for the chimps but can they keep it secret?

    Zoo Buddies The Chimps Surprise Party by Joanne Morgan is the most delightful book for the under-fives.
    It is beautifully illustrated by Angelika Scudamore who has put so much detail into each page – including a small caterpillar called Clive who is hiding on every page. I just could not turn over until I had found him! All the zoo buddies are colorful with friendly faces drawing the reader in. Each page is there to be savoured.
    The story is simple and easily understood – planning a surprise party means all the animals must work together to ensure success.
    I absolutely loved the zoo buddies and am glad to see it is the first in a new series. Every nursery and home with young children should have a copy, not just because it is beautiful but because it could entertain for hours.
    I think zoo buddies would easily translate into a cartoon or C.G.I., complete with merchandise. Imagine if your little one could take a cuddly zoo buddy to bed.
    I received a free copy from the publishers. A favorable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
