This is a lively and humorous picture book about a boy who receives an unusual prize; to run the zoo for a day! A challenging task in itself but even more so because this is a zoo for monsters! The rhyming and rhythmic text makes this a great story for reading aloud and joining in and there is plenty to talk about in the funny illustrations. Do Not Enter the Monster Zoo was shortlisted for Roald Dahl funny prize 2013 and for Booktrust best book awards 2014.
