If I Ran the Zoo
Random House, 1950 - Juvenile Fiction - 56 pages
Animals abound in Dr. Seuss's Caldecott Honor-winning picture book If I Ran the Zoo. Gerald McGrew imagines the myriad of animals he'd have in his very own zoo, and the adventures he'll have to go on in order to gather them all. Featuring everything from a lion with ten feet to a Fizza-ma-Wizza-ma-Dill, this is a classic Seussian crowd-pleaser. In fact, one of Gerald's creatures has even become a part of the language: the Nerd!
