A Very Strange Zoo

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Exciting new children’s picture book author Chris Stead delivers his sixth book, and for the child who loves both their animals and their arts and crafts, it’s an absolute delight. Designed to help with early reading requirements, it also features original and incredibly unique hand-drawn art. 

On a little island a young inventor is creating all kinds of crazy things, but the loud noise he makes in his tiny house has scared everyone else to the mainland. Lonely, he decides to use the rubbish washed up on the beach to build his own animal friends. When a freak storm hits the island a bolt of lightning strikes his animal inventions bringing them all to life. The result is a very strange zoo that all his old friends are desperate to come and see.

Like all Stead’s books, A Very Strange Zoo uses an interactive text delivery system that helps parents meet their child’s early reading needs by working to school syllabus requirements - readers are encouraged to determine the outcome of each page prior to bringing up the text.
