Explore the wacky world of Jason Korsner and Max Low’s zoo in this hilarious, rhyming picture book.
A Zoo in my Shoe presents young readers with a series of sensible sentences based on some of their favourite animals. These are then mixed up to make nonsense rhymes, sending children into fits of giggles.
Jason Korsner is a senior broadcast journalist with the BBC, as well as a film reviewer and film-maker. He is also a photographer, having had several exhibitions throughout London and his images appear in Daily Mirror. What Can You See? and I Like to Put Food in My Welly were his first picture books. He is based in London.

Max is the author and illustrator of the Ceri & Deri series of educational children’s picture books, also published by Graffeg. Max was selected as ‘one to watch’ by The Bookseller.
