A zany and colorful book by the author of The Okay Book is filled with a wealth of advice on how to behave at the zoo, from taking a nap with a hippo to brushing your hair with a lion. Original. 35,000 first printing. In author-illustrator Todd Parr's world, there are a few important rules one must always follow when visiting the zoo. "Do feed an elephant peanuts. Don't feed her peanut butter. Do take dancing lessons with a porcupine. Don't slow dance with him. Do wash your clothes with a rhino. Don't hang them on his horns to dry." Civilization would be much more civil if we could all abide by these simple behavior guidelines.

Brilliant colors and boldly outlined kid-style drawings of animals set Parr's books apart from the pack, not to mention his thoroughly nutty views on social decorum. Every one of his outrageously goofy (yet somehow earnest) life primers, including The Okay Book, The Best Friends Book, and Do's and Don'ts, will keep readers from 2 to 102 giggling and sputtering with delight. Parents might want to keep a close eye on their young ones during their next visit to the zoo, on the off chance Junior might forget his etiquette and try to use a snake as a bookmark or connect the dots with a leopard's spots.
