Illus. in color. quot;Young Gerald McGrew thinks of all sorts of unusual animals he'd have in a zoo. Dr. Seuss at his best.quot;--Horn Book.160;160;
A young boy imagines the kind of zookeeper he would be. First, he would get rid of all the "old-fashioned" animals like lions and tigers, then he would stock his zoo with such never-before-heard-of creatures as an Elephant-cat, a scraggle-foot Mulligatawny, a Thwerll, and an obsk. Imaginative illustrations depicting these wild creatures accompany the rhyming text.
