UH-OH! DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU!
You should never EVER shout in a zoo, because if you do, anything might happen! And in this book just about anything does. When a young girl shouts in a zoo she scares a bear who charges out of his pen and sets off a series of catasrophic events! Similar in style to If You Give a Mouse a Cookie this book will keep kids (and adults) giggling.
• “The bouncy text makes use of alliteration, repetition, and rhyming phrases as the narrator speaks directly to the bumptious child ("Uh-oh! Don't say I didn't warn you").”
–School Library Journal reviewing Never Ever Shout in a Zoo
• "She (Karma Wilson) brings her tremendous sense of humor to this new animal tale about chaos at a zoo, chaos that was unintentionally provoked by a little shout from a little girl."
–Borders reviewing Never Ever Shout in a Zoo
• “Watercolor and colored pencil illustration show great expressions and much energy. A fun book in the If You Give a Moose a Muffin tradition.”
