2014 год. Random House Books for Young Readers Dr. Seuss's Caldecott Honor-winning classic celebrates the power of the imagination and is now available in a jacketed edition with the Caldecott seal embossed in foil. Young Gerald McGrew thinks the old city zoo is okay, but the animals in it are awfully old-fashioned. If he ran the zoo, he'd want something new! As Gerald explains, he would find some beasts of a much more unusual kind--from a relatively tame Ten-Footed Lion to a Fizza-ma-Wizza-ma-Dill from the Island of Swark "who only eats pine trees and spits out the bark." In fact, Gerald would fill his zoo with more fantastic fauna than Noah did the Ark! Beloved by generations since it was first published in 1950, this newly jacketed edition elevates this classic picture book to the status it always deserved, and makes a perfect gift for Seuss and picture book fans of all ages.
